Flagship Project 5: Improved livelihoods at scale
The objective of Flagship Project (FP5) is to achieve more resilient total farm productivity and improved household livelihoods by scaling RTB solutions in agri-food systems. This will build on the integration of RTB crop improvement and production (FP1-FP3) and post-harvest technologies (FP4) in the broader farm, livelihood and institutional context. This results-oriented approach includes (1) a forward-looking analysis of trends, (2) an understanding of the role of RTB crop and other on-farm and off-farm livelihood activities and income sources of smallholders in particular, (3) strong and equitable collaborative arrangements among partners and beneficiaries for scaling RTB solutions, and (4) a critical assessment of outcomes and impact as part of institutional learning.
Clusters of activity
FP5 research and development activities are organized in four interrelated Clusters of Activities that together achieve the objectives and targets of the FP.
Site integration: Flagship 5 will take a strong site-specific approach, applying general lessons and tools to the local contextual setting. Through this approach, it will also reach out to other CRPs and it will include a farm- and community-level assessment of a basket of technology options (well beyond RTB). This will also help us to provide decision support for private and public sector actors on the trade-offs and synergies of different investment options.
