The project is implemented in Ethiopia, Syria and Vietnam.

Ethiopia. The project has activities in four pilot learning sites. We are working with the Improving Productivity and Market Success of Ethiopian Farmers (IPMS) project (a Canadian-funded Ethiopian Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development project, implemented under ILRI’s leadership in collaboration with national organizations and other CGIAR centres) in Atsbi, Alamata, Mieso and Ada’a.

Syria: The project is being implemented at El-Bab, Salameih and Tel-Amri in Aleppo, Hama and Homs provinces respectively. It builds upon previous forage introduction by ICARDA and the Syrian Ministry of Agriculture and Agrarian Reform in El-Bab, and ICARDA and Aga Khan Development Foundation in Salameih.

Vietnam. The project is working at two learning sites. These are located in Ea Kar district, Daklak and in Ky Anh district, Ha Tinh. In Daklak, the project builds on previous introduction of forages by CIAT and Tay Nguyen University. In Ha Tinh, the project works within the project area of IFAD Loan Project ‘Programme for improving market participation of the poor (IMPP)’ using the lessons on fodder innovations generated at the Daklak learning site.
