RHoMIS was developed to efficiently collect a series of harmonized and standardized performance indicators at farm household level, especially targeting smallholder farmers in developing (or now maybe better: low income) countries.
A study, led by researchers based at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), decided to look at what contributes to food security within a household and what others can learn from these families. The team also wanted to explore whether there are gender differentiated responses to climate change.
At this week’s international conference on Integrated Systems Research for Sustainable Intensification in Smallholder Agriculture, Randall Ritzema gave a presentation explaining ‘what works where for which farm household’ that estimates the effects of different interventions on food availability across household distributions in East and West Africa.
