Abstract

The objective of this research was to explore how the curriculum of 100WEEKS could be improved and to understand better how farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa can be motivated to adopt agricultural practices to improve their livelihoods. Intrinsic and extrinsic motivational factors both play a role in the extent to which agricultural practices are adopted within a training program and implemented by trainees. Situational circumstances such as culture, gender roles and the wider local context are essential for deeper understanding the motivations of a farmer. Mapping out these variables provides a true understanding of the given context, creating pathways towards advanced international development practices that depart from local, pre-existing knowledge systems.
