See further: Mapping sustainable intensification initiatives 

    • PROIntensAfrica intends to map existing agricultural research projects for sustainable intensification in Africa. 
    • PROIntensAfrica wants to identify the thematic coverage and the respective share of the different pathways of intensification. 
    • The mapping and its analysis will provide data for the identification of the potential of the future IntensAfrica partnership to complement the thematic coverage, strengthen scale consistency and identify new options.
    • This mapping exercise of related ongoing programs and research agendas will ensure that the domains, identified during the PROIntensAfrica project, will be inclusive, complementary and synergistic to existing and on-going (national, bilateral or international) activities.
