The Roles of Agroforestry in sustainable intensification of small farms and food Security of Societies in West Africa (RAMSES II) project is an international cooperation initiative based on inter and transdisciplinary research for development (R4D) activities. The RAMSES II project is coordinated by IRD and jointly implemented by WASCAL, CIRAD, WUR, ISRA, INERA, WASCAL and, (APAF, Bird Life International, Global Shea Alliance). The overall objective of RANSES II is to assess where, when, and how domestication, regeneration and densification of woody species in the traditional agroforestry parklands may contribute to sustainable ecological intensification of agriculture in West Africa. RAMSES II will provide scenarios of intensification of multifunctional agroforestry parklands, valuing both ecological processes and contextual adaptive practices along a diversity of ecological, technical and socio-economic conditions, knowledge and agricultural models to sustainably increase food, income, and environmental security.
