Abstract: The research focus is urban and rural linkages in relation to agriculture and food systems, while also aiming to strengthen innovation capacity for better adaptation to climate change and climate variability. Findings revealed that farmer learning groups led to rapid uptake of successful technologies on members’ own fields, as well as on their neighbouring fields, and that farmers became empowered through access to information and agricultural extension services. The study further established that the participatory learning approach strengthened farmers’ ability to analyze and identify ways of improving their situation and enabled them to adopt appropriate technologies. Capacity building interventions are summarized.
