The vision of PrAEctiCe is to help smallholder farmers
in their agroecological transition by exploring the potential of agroecological practices in East Africa. 

PrAEctiCe aims to provide a novel agroecology indicator set focusing on circular water-energy-nutrient systems of integrated aqua-agriculture while keeping the smallholder farmer’s needs at the centre.


PrAEctiCe is a Horizon Europe project funded by the European Commission. 

Agroecology means productive, sustainable, resilient, and environmentally safe farming and food systems, combining indigenous knowledge with cutting-edge science, optimizing interactions between plants, animals, humans, and the environment, and promoting the transition to fair, just, and sovereign food systems.

PrAEctiCe will quantify the impacts of agroecological practices in a local context by identifying the most promising agroecological approaches for existing farms and providing suggestions for going forward, providing evidence that the circular water-energy-nutrient systems of integrated aquaculture-agriculture are amongst the best practices for East Africa to address the issue of climate change while increasing the financial viability of smallholder farms.



How will PrAEctiCe meet its objective?


Co-creation activities

Stakeholders will be involved by providing input for research activities. They will have the opportunity to validate developed conclusions and results. This will be carried out during workshops, site visits and surveys based on the collaboration of various partners.


Decision support tool

A dedicated tool will put PrAEctiCe’s vision and objectives into concrete action, establishing agroecological guidelines for farmers through data collection and practical approaches to different challenging situations.


Living Labs 

Three living labs will be operated with the aim to unify community knowledge with scientific expertise. These demonstration pilots are action-based projects that produce data and validation for the Decision Support Tool. 



Supporting the farmers and building knowledge through “train the trainers” courses and practical training on integrated aqua-agriculture. Facilitation of knowledge exchange across continents and between disciplines.
