Project Approach

EaTSANE aims to implement sustainable farming practices and improve diets of households in Kenya and Uganda by diversifying the food system with a participatory action learning approach. The project works on three pathways to archive the project's objectives:

  1. Diversified farming practices for healthier soils and diversified production

  2. Improved access of value chain actors to inputs and services

  3. Enhancing consumers’ food culture and diversified nutrition.

Three interlinked science-based work packages facilitate learning along the three pathways through participatory action research. They create outputs in two respects: Firstly, the activities translate directly into learning and change processes for participating actors in the target region. Secondly, research findings feed into a national communication and dissemination strategy.

A practice-oriented work package on communication and education supports the production of tool kits, learning materials, information campaigns, and contributes to a policy dialogue based on the findings from the science-based workpackages.

All project outputs contribute to outcomes in form of behavior change of farmers and other value chain actors who are involved in participatory action research as well as a wider group of people who will be addressed with the planned communication and education measures.
