Promoting systems thinking and building consensus: insights from Burkina Faso, Nigeria, and Malawi

We convened three stakeholder workshops around the future
of agricultural development and rural livelihoods in Burkina Faso, Nigeria, and Malawi, using a participatory scenario generation process.

These three workshops were designed to inform the implementation of research priorities, with a focus on perennial cropping systems. The priorities were developed under the CGIAR Dryland Systems program in Burkino Faso and Nigeria, and under the Gates foundation in Malawi.

Participants emerged from the workshops with greater consensus and, possibly, greater clarity and focus around research priorities for the future.

The scenarios were made in:

2014

The scenarios look out to:

2050
