IS ABOUT REALIZING THE TRANSFORMATIVE POTENTIAL OF PUSH-PULL TECHNOLOGY BY EXPANDING ITS SCOPE AND APPLICABILITY

UPSCALE PROJECT

What is the UPSCALE Project?

UPSCALE aims to take key steps to realize the transformative potential of push-pull technology, to address food security, livelihoods and climate change resilience in the sub-Saharan region of East Africa, while reducing the environmental impact of agricultural practices. For this, it will foster the design, adaptation and adoption of strategies for integrated agro-ecological management based on push-pull technology for wide-spread and climate-resilient sustainable intensification.

UPSCALE will collaborate with farmers and regional partners to decide on a prioritized list of candidate crops from conventional, organic, cash and mixed subsistence crops, for adapting to push-pull. Particular attention will be paid to integration within women-based farming systems as a means of gender mainstreaming, and to the use of traditional varieties and locally available and economically or culturally useful plant species in the development of effective push-pull innovation packages.
