The overall purpose was stated as \"Promotion of strategies to reduce the impact of pests and stabilise yields in semi-arid cereal-based cropping systems, for benefit of poor people.\" The project centred around:
- Mobilising key stakeholders around the task of understanding institutional and communication related constraints to the promotion and uptake of CP technologies in semiarid areas of East Africa
- addressing these constraints through identified promotional and communicational opportunities of a sustainable nature,
- using an action-learning approach to engage key stakeholders and encourage them to reflect on and evaluate aspects of their previous and ongoing institutional arrangements and professional practice relating to the promotion and communication of CP information.
