Phase 2

WLE recently submitted a proposal for its second phase, which is planned to start in 2017 and build on the partnerships and outcomes of Phase 1.

WLE Phase 2 (2017-2022) is designed to identify synergies between increased agricultural productivity and economic prosperity, while achieving environmental sustainability. WLE will complement research on specific commodities and value chains by focusing game-changing solutions and innovations that will transform both agro-ecosystems and the institutions that manage them. Building on the significant set of solutions and approaches from its first phase, WLE supports communities, policymakers, investors and the private sector to make better decisions when planning and implementing development efforts that impact on landscapes.
