Pathways to sustainable intensification in Eastern and Southern Africa – Tanzania 2010

The survey targeted two maize-legume based farming systems in the eastern and northern zones of Tanzania. In the eastern zone the survey target two districts; Kilosa and Mvomero. While in the northern zone the study focused on Mbulu and Karatu districts. A combination of purposive and stratified sampling methods were used to select the four districts (Karatu, Mbulu, Mvomero and Kilosa) included in this survey. As the project focus is on maize based farming system, maize production used as an important criterion to select districts, wards and villages. A total of 39 wards were sampled. A multi-stage random sampling procedure was used to arrive at a total sample of 65 villages. In each district, wards selected with probability to proportional size. The number of villages selected with probability to proportional size was 60. In every selected village, probability to proportional size sampling was used to identify the households that were interviewed. A total of 701 households were interviewed.

Pathways to Sustainable Intensification in Eastern and Southern Africa – General Overview

The Adoption Pathways project was part of a portfolio of projects that has contributed to the broader theme of sustainable intensification research led by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and made possible by the contribution of several teams from national and international research groups brought together by funding from the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR). The project was undertaken in the five Eastern and Southern African countries of Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique and Tanzania. 1. Gender disaggregated three wave panel data set (2010/11, 2013), building on a legacy dataset collected under a related ACIAR funded project (SIMLESA) is now being developed covering close to 3500 households in each data wave across the five project countries. The 2015/16 data will be available in due course. 2. Several empirical evaluations of the gender gaps in technology adoption, food security and market access have been completed and published. 3. These results have been shared in various policy forums including but not limited to annual project meetings. In order to achieve its full impact in the coming years; we propose that new projects and initiatives based on the work of the Adoption Pathways project be established. These should focus on capacity building for the analysis of panel datasets, continued work on studying intrahousehold input allocation and sharing of agricultural output and scaling up the findings from this project to influence next generation of sustainable agriculture policies.
