Trees for Food Security Project participatory trials follow up study in Rwanda


A survey was conducted in 2014 to determine farmers’ perception on the agroforestry trials established under the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) funded ‘Trees for Food Security’ (T4FS) project in Rwanda. The trials form part of Work Package (WP) 2 activities- obtaining and documenting feedback from farmers with participatory trials. The specific objectives of the study were to: 1) Determine the number of farmers and technologies in place. 2) Understand farmers’ perception towards effectiveness of the technologies. 3) Determine challenges faced in implementation of the technologies and 4) Identify opportunities for improvement of the technologies.
