FAO announced Call for Expressions of Interest (EOI) for Documenting Adoption of Natural Resource Management (NRM) Technologies in October this year.
Centre for Land Tenure Studies (CLTS) was one of those who showed interest in EOI for Adoption of Interest for Adoption of NRM technologies. Glad news came from FAO stating that CLTS's EOI has received high marks in the FAO's review and was therefore selected as potential participant in new FAO project.
Stein T. Holden, who is one of the members of CLTS, will participate in the workshop organized by FAO in Rome on the 16th -17th of December. The objective of the workshop is to identify specific groups that could productively collaborate on collecting data on these issues, and to help develop workplans with the goal of funding sets of viable case studies to be implemented in 2016-2017. This means that CLTS has a potential of being part of a new research project "Adoption of Conservation Technologies in Malawi" already next year. Samson Katageza, a Malawian PhD-student at HH-NMBU, linked to the Climate Smart Natural Resource Management and Policy (CLISNARP) project funded under NORHED (NORAD) programme and Monica Fisher, Oregon State University, will participate in the project if final funding is granted.
