Monitoring, evaluation, learning and impact assessment (MELIA)

Building on decades of research, FTA activities in Southern Africa have reached over 120,000 farm households with fertilizer tree technologies (promoting Faidherbia albida trees in fields). Fields with trees show 11-14% higher yields than those without, equating to an increased grain yield of 200 kg per hectare per year, which is more than enough extra grain to feed a child for a year.
