Shamba Shape Up
RIU's funding agreement related to the production of a pilot of Shamba Shape Up, which was completed in 2007.
Some of the research to be covered in the upcoming series include:
- integrated pest management (how Napier grass can be intercropped to deter the maize stalk borer)
- rain water harvesting (affordable methods for catching and storing rain water)
- how to make and use low-energy stoves (reducing fuel demands)
- human and animal health issues
- access and use of micro-finance
