The humid highlands in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) are characterized by high population densities and require intensification. The Consortium for Improving Agriculture-based Livelihoods in Central Africa (CIALCA) has set up a research for development platform in various mandate areas in DR Congo, Burundi, and Rwanda, aiming to identify improved production, market, and nutrition options and facilitating the access for development partners to these options. This platform is supported by capacity building, multi-stakeholder dialogue, and monitoring and evaluation efforts. The conference, facilitated by CIALCA, aimed to (i) take stock of the state-of the art in agricultural intensification in the highlands of SSA and (ii) chart the way forward for agricultural research for development in the humid highlands of SSA, and more specifically in the recently launched Humidtropics Consortium Research Programme, through keynote, oral and poster presentations, and strategic panel discussions.Doctor of Phil. thesis, Moi University, Eldoret, Kenya Mbakaya DS, Odenya JO, Njeru C, Luteya J (2006) Effects of ... soil and plant analysis: a working manual, 2nd TSBF-CIAT, SSSEA, KARI, Sacred Africa, Moi University, 127 pp Okalebo JR , anbsp;...
