International Cooperation

Hauptinhalt der Seite

For several years there has been close cooperation between ZALF and ICRAF in Kenya and Tanzania. ICRAF belongs to the group of international CGIAR Consortion Research Centres. The collaboration began in 2007 with the BMZ/GIZ /BEAF projects ReACCT and Better-IS. After these successful projects (Resilient Agro-landscapes to Climate Change in Tanzania (ReACCT) and Biofuel Evaluation for Technological Efficiency Using Renewables Integrated Strategies (Better-iS)) the cooperation continues within trans-SEC.

The collaboration from ZALF with ICRAF regional offices and headquarter in Nairobi, Kenya (Henry Neufeld and Myuki Liyama) has been furthermore intensified significantly by working together with Anthony Kimaro, who followed Aichi Kitaly from the regional Bureau of Tanzania in the recent years. In the BMBF Globe-E project Trans-SEC Anthony Kimaro now works together with Götz Uckert, Stefan Sieber, Johannes Hafner and Frieder Graef. With Anthony Kimaro the network has been extended in particular through collaborations of the World Agroforestry Centre ICRAF with the Africa RISING research program and the African Soil Information Services (Afsis) project (

In 2016, Anthony Kimaro has signed a contract as a fellow at ZALF. He studied forestry at the Sokoine University of Agriculture in Morogoro (Tanzania) and holds a PhD at the University Toronto, Canada. During his studies he specialized in agroforestry, focusing on soil fertility and the interactions of trees with crops.

Anthony Kimaro stays at ZALF for three weeks. The focus of the current co-operation are the drafting of project proposals and publications of the jointly developed results. In the second year the work focus will shift towards a more scenario and model-based analysis using the so far published data and research findings.
