SIMLESA, in collaboration with other programs, facilitated the release of 40 new maize varieties. ... Many of which were specifically selected for their drought tolerance and some of which were selected for their phenotypic characteristics suitable for maize-legume intercropping in conservation agriculture systems.
Considering the importance of legume in food security and plant based protein nutrition of many families,... SIMLESA co-sponsored participatory varietal selections (PVSs) sessions involving 378 legume varieties. A total of 64 varieties across the five program countries positively met PVS team’s criteria and therefore were acceptable for official release.
Toward the end of 2016, the program managed to competitively select 19 partners ...to drive the scaling out initiatives under the Competitive Grants Scheme (CGS).
A total of 58 Innovation Platforms were established to assist in scaling out ...of Sustainable agricultural intensification (SAI) technologies and viable marketing of agricultural produce for maximum benefits.
A regional policy summit was held in October 2015 which resulted in the signing of a Ministerial Cummunique by five countries... (Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, Rwanda) committing to the mainstreaming of SIMLESA resultsin their countries' agricultural policies.
The project has been determined to reach out to the policy community with the publication and dissemination of more than 57 policy briefs....These have been variously disseminated at project annual meetings, other gatherings and also be found on this page.
