    Transhumance, the seasonal movement of herds occurring between two points and following precise routes repeated each year, is practiced on a broad scale in the open field areas of Tigray (North Ethiopia). This article presents a characterization of the practice, factors that explain its magnitude, and recent changes. Eleven villages were selected randomly, semistructured interviews were conducted, and data on the sites were collected both in the field and from secondary sources.

    The knowledge and principles generated by CPWF-PN15 confirm that QSMAS can be a model production system for implementing conservation agriculture to achieve food security and sustainable development in drought-prone areas of hillsides in the sub-humid tropics, while providing ecosystem services in the face of land degradation and climate change. As an adoptable option to replace the slash and burn traditional system, QSMAS can improve smallholder livelihoods through eco-efficient use and conservation of natural resources.

    This 2010-12 MTP presents relatively few adjustments to research plans from the previous MTP. One main cross-cutting change in the ILRI research program in 2010 will be to accelerate efforts to align research activities to the livestock development challenges presented. In preparation for that, ILRI is conducting a center-commissioned external review in 2009 looking at research into sustainable intensification of smallholder crop-livestock systems to provide a review of past activities and advice on this future focal area.

    Improving On-farm Agricultural Water Productivity in the Karkheh River Basin

    (KRB) was a CPWF project that aimed at enhancement of agricultural water

    productivity (WP) under irrigated and rainfed conditions in Karkheh River Basin. It

    was launched in Iran through the partnership of ICARDA and the Iranian NARES

    under the Agricultural Extension, Education, and Research Organization.

    The project lasted for more than four years between 2004 and 2008. Whereas

    capacity building was an important part of the agenda, PN8 was a participatory,

    Availability of major feed resources, cattle fattening practices and marketing system were studied to generate baseline information which can be used for future interventions to develop market oriented cattle fattening program within the integrated mixed crop-livestock system. The study was conducted using cross-sectional survey by interviewing a total of 153 cattle fattener households proportionally selected from four kebeles in Weina-Dega and two kebeles in Sub- Kolla agro-ecologies of Bure Woreda in Amhara National Regional State, Ethiopia.

    Through its innovative operations, and its facilitation of dynamic

    communities of researchers, development experts, policy makers,

    producers and consumers, this CGIAR Challenge Program goes

    beyond research for development as usually practiced.

    Yet, paradoxically for a program well-versed in technical and

    social complexity, the CPWF approach is simple: to effectively

    address a shared problem, we must first work together.

    The study was carried out in Metema Woreda of Amhara National Regional State. The objectives of the study were to describe the goat production systems in the study area and to identify major constraints and opportunities of goat productivity; to evaluate the effect of supplementation with different protein sources on live weight gain of grazing goats under farmers management and to evaluate the economic feasibility of the feeding system under farmers condition.
