In East and Southeast Asia (SEA) about 1.7 billion pesons are living on less than US$i/day. This project will seek to alleviate poverty, food scarcity,a nd reduce environmental degradation in SEA by combining economically viable and resource-conserving technologies, and gender friendly socio-economic policies that will benefit and reward stakeholders in a watershed, especially small-scale farmers both women and men (SSFWM). The hypothesis to be tested is integrating vegetable production in the agro-forestry system biodiversity in SEA watersheds and vice-versa. It has objectives on SANREM Technology, Marketing, Policy, Environmental and socio-economic impacts, Gender and Scaling-up (TMPEGS). A team of 28 scientists from several prestigious U.S. and SEA universities, including the world agro-forestry (ICRAF) and the world vegetable (AVRDC) centers, and MARS Incorporated have formed a robust partnership to serve the poor in SEA.
