NRI, University of Greenwich news – November

SAIRLA, a DFID-funded programme on Sustainable Agricultural Intensification Research and Learning in Africa, jointly run by NRI, finished earlier this year. The programme commissioned eight major research projects and facilitated multi-scale social learning though National Learning Alliances within and across six countries in sub-Saharan Africa to understand, engage with and inform decisions on Sustainable Agricultural Intensification. See the article on NRI’s website, the SAIRLA website, and this introduction to the special issue of the International Journal of Agricultural Sustainability:
