4R Champions are expected to be an advocate for the 4R Solution project and incorporate the 4R Nutrient Stewardship framework into agriculture in their respective regions. Champions will play a key role in sharing information, intelligence and helping to identify issues and resolve those top-down, bottom-up and across. 4R Champions can be anyone from local government, ministries, farm groups and key rural development actors. They might be academics, policymakers, scientists or agribusiness owners.
The 4R Champion program is part of the Global Affairs Canada funded 4R Solution project that is being implemented in three sub-Saharan countries – Ethiopia, Ghana and Senegal. The project will improve the overall well-being of 80,000 smallholder farmers, 50 percent of whom are women. The initiative aims to improve agricultural productivity and farm income, by incorporating 4R Nutrient Stewardship (Right Source @ Right Rate, Right Time, Right Place ®) into fertilizer use management as well as important gender and environmental resilience strategies.
