Farmers will adopt new agricultural technologies and other policy instruments if they fit into their resource endowments, objectives, goals, and risk aversion strategies. This study examines the effects of high-yielding maize varieties and the use of machineries on the production, income, crop mixtures, and demand for production resources in two farms and farm household typologies in the northern cotton growing belt of Benin Republic. The role of whole-farm modelling in agricultural technology and policy instruments evaluation is discussed.

Capacity building and training
A country cannot mitigate or adapt to climate change without first strengthening skills and the knowledge to do so. The CTCN works with network members and local stakeholders to provide information, training and support to build and/or strengthen the capacity of developing countries to identify, maintain and adapt climate technology solutions. Capacity building and training can enable decision-makers to initiate change on local and national level. As part of this effort, the CTCN strives to develop analytical tools, policies and best practices for country-driven climate mitigation and adaptation. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.
