How can we manage invasive weeds in arable lands?
Invasive alien plants cause significant additional production cost and crop losses in agriculture. The r4d Woody Weeds project supports local communities in selecting sustainable land management strategies against specific invasive species by guiding groups of stakeholders through a structured decision-making process. Some of the strategies are test-implemented by community members. Watch in YouTube.
This video-clip was produced as part of the r4d programme Digital Storytellers synthesis project. Its contents were filmed and selected by René Eschen from CABI Switzerland in collaboration with local partners in Tanzania. The digital storytelling process was accompanied and supported by Paitití Lab.
