dc.description.abstract This thesis is an investigation of the potential of agroforestry technologies as means of increasing access to households’ food security, socioeconomic stability and peacebuilding in Jonglei state, South Sudan. The study utilized qualitative research methods, involving 31 key informant interviews, 100 semi-structured interviews, two focus groups discussions and six farmers’ group discussions, farm field visits, and participant’s observations. Findings indicated the majority of the local farmers in Jonglie are widows. These widows are mainly the household heads with large numbers or orphans. This study revealed that these widows are supporting their rural communities through adoption of agroforestry systems and technologies to increase access to food and income security for the poor communities to rebuild their livelihoods asset base to enhance socioeconomic stability and peacebuilding. The study recommended that farmers adopt improved fallow, fodder bank and biomass transfer agroforestry technologies as the most suitable systems for smallholders’ farmers in Jonglie. en_US
