N2Africa update on Legume Alliance
What Edward Baars of IITA/N2Africa decided to share about the Legume Alliance.
What started as an agreeable brain storming session, has, over time become the ‘Bean Thinking’ campaign to inform smallholder farming household members about good practice in common bean farming.
A group of public and private sector entities has joined with an array of initiatives into an innovative Legume Alliance. The Alliance, takes the partnerships N2Africa is involved in to the next level. The Africa Soil Health Consortium (ASHC) coordinates the Alliance, IITA-N2Africa, like the other members, have their niche roles. While the N2Africa related partnerships in the various countries will be further elaborated on in the next Podcaster, we can also look ahead with the Legume Alliance as a promising example of collaborative working which is further detailed in http://africasoilhealth.cabi.org/2015/06/03/tanzania-legume-campaign-planned-for-2015
