Learning module 5: Using insights
- What processes help to uptake the insights from synergies and trade-offs assessments?
- What are key enabling factors for these processes?
In this module reflections, challenges, processes and opportunities are described that are of importance for improving use of insights on synergies and tradeoffs. The learning materials in this module go beyond the assessment of trade-offs and synergies, and ask the question how to move from insight to action. They bring together various perspectives, lived-through experiences, and insights from engaging in multi sectoral policy and agricultural management processes.
