Summary

The role of technologies to support a transition to agroecological production systems is becoming increasingly important(e.g. digital or biotechnological technologies). Technologies are often assigned the role of a key driver of change wherethe proposed, mostly proprietary technologies shape the change process and require adaptation of the farmer and theproduction system to the technology in order to allow the technology to realize its maximum potential. We place the focuson the farmer and the agroecological production systems and retool digital technologies to support the farmers inrealizing the maximum potential of their agroecological production systems. Here, we present the current outcomes of theResearch and Advocacy on Agroecology program, coordinated by Swissaid Tanzania, and implemented by national andinternational partners, including Sustainable Agriculture Tanzania (SAT), Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA) and theSwiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH).
