Abstract
Agriculture supports about 70% of the rural households in Southern Africa, albeit with dire consequences on the environment. The later phenomenon has prompted many local and international organizations, including the United Nations Food and Agricultural organization to promote sustainable agricultural technologies, like integrated agriculture, conservation tillage and organic agriculture although comparatively these efforts have registered very low adoption rates due to a number of challenges faced by the farmers. Using the Sustainable Livelihoods Framework (SFL), this project analyses the livelihood outcomes and contributions of these various agricultural technologies in Mozambique, one of the poorest countries in the region, that allow households to be more resilient and recover from various vulnerabilities brought about by shocks and stresses affecting agricultural performance.
