Purpose: Improved capacity of Ethiopian scientists, farming communities, government agencies and other stakeholders to adopt an ecosystem approach to (a) identify key sites at risk from the harmful environmental effects of agrochemical use b) monitor, measure and understand such impacts close to biodiversity-rich wetlands, (c) develop and implement practical solutions based on agroecological farming and (d) align policies with biodiversity conservation goals. Rift Valley Lake farming communities will benefit from safer, sustainable pest management, better water quality and ecosystem services. Government agencies and conservation bodies will gain skills to monitor pesticide impacts with rural communities and feed evidence into policy forums.
