Phase-I (1998-2002):

27 interdisciplinary projects at country level

From 1999 through 2002, the IP was operational in four countries in East and Southern Africa: Uganda, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Since early 2002 it has remained operational in the first three of these countries.

The IP was funded to enhance collaboration and interdisciplinarity within the following priority areas:

  • farm animal genetic resources,
  • socio-economic and gender analysis,
  • farm household resource management,
  • gender disaggregated data,
  • agricultural research,
  • extension,
  • natural resources,
  • environmental information systems and communication for development.

National workshops in 1999 resulted in national workplans. Initiatives were supported because of their interdisciplinary character and/or because they were perceived as having a potential to give important learning experiences on cross-sectoral collaboration.

27 projects were implemented in partnership with more than 70 institutions and organizations during Phase-I. For more information on each project, see here. See also IP-publications from Phase-I.
