Kunnen lokale mensen zelf hun bos beheren? Een verkenning in Oeganda (Promotie)
Dinsdag 07 December 2021 14:30

Promovendus: de heer L. Ssozi MSc.. Promotor(es): prof. dr. ir. W.T. de Groot, prof. dr. H.A.E. Zwart. Copromotor(es): R. Esuruku. (Sub)titel: Towards strength-based conservation of Mabira Forest, Uganda. Dichtbij de bronnen van de Nijl in Oeganda ligt het Mabira regenwoud. Er loopt een drukke weg doorheen en er wonen heel veel mensen in de buurt, maar het woud is er nog steeds, terwijl er geen hek omheen staat. Blijkbaar zijn er over het tropisch regenwoud ook andere verhalen te vertellen dan alleen maar verhalen van verlies en vernietiging. In dit proefschrift vertelt Leonard Ssozi het verhaal van het Mabira regenwoud, een verhaal waarin overheden en lokale mensen – hoewel geen van beide zonder zwakheden – een grotendeels positieve rol spelen. Het proefschrift eindigt met een voorstel waarin de kracht van lokale mensen, in samenhang met een faciliterende overheid, wordt ingezet om het Mabira woud te bewaren voor mens en natuur.

PhD defence: It is time to harvest! Towards sustainable farming systems in the East African highlands
Woensdag 08 December 2021 13:30 - 15:00

PhD candidate: W (Wytze) Marinus MSc. Promotor: prof.dr. KE (Ken) Giller. Co-promotor: dr ir KKE Descheemaeker & dr ir GWJ van de Ven & dr B Vanlauwe. Organisation:Wageningen University, Plant Production Systems. This work employed the ‘integrated co-learning approach’ which we developed and tested in western Kenya. The aim of the approach was to facilitate sustainable intensification and thereby to increase crop yields and household income of smallholder farmers. During the five seasons of the programme most households became maize self-sufficient as yields doubled or tripled. Provision of input vouchers each season allowed farmers to invest in technology such as seeds, fertilizer and other inputs. Yet due to small farm sizes most households were not able to earn a ‘living income’ despite the large increases in yields. This thesis underscored the need for large changes within and outside the farming sector to sustainably increase yields and farmer incomes, while ensuring no one is left behind.
