URBANE partners have designed real-world case studies that cover different agroecological zones in Western Africa. Six WA countries make up the URBANE CS countries and the pilot sites were selected following a series of assessments, registering capabilities and potential impact of the URBANE approach in these farms considering not only environmental factors but also socio-economic ones.
Six pilot sites are selected, two for EACH: vegetable production, poultry and piggery. One of the piggery farms also has some crops being cultivated, offering the possibility of exploring crop-livestock integration.
Two PILOT sites are selected to deploy the case study scenarios. The first FARM is an animal farm breeding chickens and the second is a crop farm where CITRUS TREES ARE GROWN.
TWO PILOT SITES ARE SELECTED both of which are mixed farms. For the first one agroecological practices are already in use and will be enhanced with urbane, while the second site is a combination of four smaller farms in near proximity that form a collective.
TWo Pilot sites are selected, both of which are piggeries. Potential bat-pig interaction routes will be investigated for identifications of differences in both likelihood of bat virus spill-over into pigs and pig-to-pig transmission of bat viruses in intensive vs. extensive farming systems.
Four pilot sites are selected, two for crop farming and two for poultry breeding. The case study will be focused on local mixed farming systems where intensive farming practices are currently applied with uses of pesticides and chemical fertilizers.
TWO PILOT SITES ARE SELECTED. The case study will focus on local agricultural mixed system specifically the Tilapia fish and the fonio plant. Despite the regulated use of pesticides for agriculture their wide use in the country is still problematic.
