This project seeks to scale up intercropping systems for improved food, seed and livelihoods security and women empowerment. The impact of climate change on food security is going to be addressed through careful selection of intercropping systems and locally produced seeds that are climate-proof.
The project is located in six wards of Mwenezi district, Masvingo province, Zimbabwe.
