Soil map

The soil fertility is calculated based on the soil types provided by Soil Atlas of Africa. We catogorized the soil fertilities into 5 groups (Excellent, Excellent if slope > 2%, Good, Marginal, and poor).

Join your local multi actor community of practice

The National Coordinator Partners (NCP) play a key role in the planning and implementation of the UPSCALE project in the five countries of sub-Saharan Africa. Their role cuts across all levels of activity, providing key support in the efficient organization of field work, field data collection, networking and dissemination among local communities and governments, and formation and spearheading of Multi Actor Communities of practice (MAC) around push-pull and sustainable intensification. Contact one of our NCPs for more information on how you can join the multi actor community and support the spreading of nature based solutions in your region.
