Year Published:
Resource Type:
Technical Guidance

This document presents a set of best practices for BHA-funded program staff to consider when cascading resilient agriculture approaches to partner organizations, agricultural extension staff, and farming communities. The practices are based on RFSA evaluations and incorporate past learning on adaptive management, mentorship, and the use of demonstration sites, as well as adult learning principles and social and behavior change studies. Staff are encouraged to apply these best practices when cascading resilient agriculture interventions, whether at the garden- or the field-level. The best practices presented here can be used to support a range of agricultural activities, such as those targeting nutrition and food security, environmental regeneration, or income generation.
