The implementation of the KKM PLS SSA CP project between 2008 and 2010 revealed some achievements, lessons learned, and challenges as it relates to sustainable agricultural intensification. One of the key areas emphasized by the program has to do with its role in facilitating institutional innovations as a means of enhancing sustainable reduction of hunger and poverty. A key element was the program’s capacity to ensure “widespread adoption of technologies and improve income of stakeholders…” This was made possible by (among others) the “harmonization of distinct institutional agendas and practices among a diversity of actors (e.g., farmers’ associations, entrepreneurs, NGOs, CBOs, development-oriented organizations, ministries, and research and extension agencies)”. This was done in line with the Sudan Savanna Taskforce strategy of using “innovation platforms to enhance agricultural productivity and income of rural farmers along the value chain without degrading the natural resource base”.
