Selecting strategies: Stakeholder Workshop 2 Print

Results and conclusions from Stakeholder Workshop 2 "Selection and decision on technologies/approaches to be implemented", held in Totana, 26-27 June 2008.

Authors: Jorge López, Joris de Vente, Albert Solé


The workshop methodology was designed and coordinated through Research Theme 3: Potential prevention & mitigation strategies and consisted of three main elements:

  • A participatory approach to guide and lead the workshop participants through a process of multi-criteria evaluation of different options which finally results in decision-making on strategies to be field-tested.
  • The WOCAT database containing locally applied options as well as options from a number of other contexts.
  • 'Facilitator', a Multi Objective Decision Support System (MODSS) software to support the single steps of the evaluation and decision-making process.

Target groups were the same as in the 1st workshop: local stakeholders (land users, representatives of local authorities, local NGOs) and external stakeholders (researchers, development professionals, NGOs, GOs).


As a result of the workshop, the following measures were selected for testing in field experiments.


Land use
Reduced tillage of dryland cereals With disc-plough agronomic cropland
Green manure in ecological agriculture of almonds Seeding mixture of cereals and Vicia sativa agronomic cropland
Reduced tillage in ecological agriculture of almonds 2 tillages instead of 3-5 per year agronomic cropland
Traditional water harvesting Earthen wall to divert water from a river bed structural cropland
Organic straw mulch under almonds To prevent losses by evapotranspiration agronomic cropland
