Agroecological TRANSITIONS – PSii
||Transformative Partnerships Platform (TPP) Agroecology;
Sustainable Amazonian businesses; Sustainable Rice Platform
|Landscapes, Food Systems
||To enable agroecological transitions through the development and adoption of holistic metrics for food and agricultural systems performance, inclusive digital tools and transparent private sector engagement
1. Improving private and private-public sector incentive models to support agroecological transitions for farmers and consumers.
2. Increasing transparency and traceability in supply chains on agroecological metrics and principles.
3. Enhancing the capacity of local institutions for engaging in private-public finance models, assessments and policies that support agroecological transitions.

||City regional food systems
||Develop a systems-based approach for agroecological transitions of food systems for improved health and nutrition, with corresponding decision-support tools and multi-stakeholder platforms to facilitate coordinated, landscape-scale transitions to navigate associated benefits and tradeoffs for both rural and urban communities within city region food systems
1. Develop a systems and evidence-based approach for priority-setting and targeting of landscape, value chain, community and farm scale agroecological intensification interventions/innovations that enable socially-inclusive food system and nutrition transformations.
2. Co-create scaling strategies for agroecological innovations to enable City-Regional food systems transitions that improve sustainability, nutritional security and climate resilience in each country with relevant stakeholders

|Transformative Partnership Platform (TPP) - Agroecology Viability
||Government of France
||Multiple, focusing on smallholder production systems
||Field to farm and household scales
||The overall objective of this call is to better understand the socio-economic viability of
agroecological practices and their livelihood system impacts across environmental and
demographic gradients in Africa
|To conduct a holistic evaluation including:
1. Quantitative and qualitative assessment of the labour required by agroecological practices.
2. Income (including returns to labour) and food security outcomes for households with contrasted access to: income sources (non-farm and off-farm), markets and policy
3. Intra household levers and lock-ins (in terms of access to knowledge, land tenure, gender, risk aversion, religion and age equity).
4. The economic value of ecosystem services and disservices relevant to the location of the case studies
|Agroecological Regenerative Cocoa (ARC)
||French Facility for Global Environment

|Peru Colombia Ecuador
||Landscape to farm level
||The project aims to contribute to the creation of sustainable cocoa systems that provide livelihoods for farmers, conserve forests and create – through land restoration, rehabilitation and transformation – 600 hectares of cacao farms in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
1. To develop an integrated farming vision, through agroforestry cocoa farming systems (SAF), which includes production aspects as much as production, soil restoration or landscape conservation;
2. To strengthen the infrastructure and skills of producers and their organizations throughout the cocoa value chain, from production to final commercialization;
3. To create and implement instruments for impact analysis and monitoring of productive landscapes in the project's area of influence through community governance;
4. To capitalize on experiences and lessons learned on sustainable agricultural practices and the conservation of biodiversity and forest ecosystems

|Agroecological TRANSITIONS Inclusive Digital Tools (ATDT)
||2022 - 2024
Transformative Partnerships Platform (TPP)
|Farmers to food systems
||To support more inclusive digital tools for farmer technical advisors and performance assessment to enable climate-informed agroecological transitions at scale for rice systems in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam and livestock landscapes in Pará and Mato Grosso States, Brazil, with lessons for major tools globally and the potential to reach at least one million farmers by 2024.
||1. Understand the role of digital tools in inclusive knowledge development for achieving climate-informed agroecology at large scales
2. Improve inclusive knowledge development in digital tools for technical advisories and farm performance assessment
3. Demonstrate the benefits that farmers can derive from using improved digital tools and their potential to generate large-scale impacts for climate-informed agroecology.
