In 2005, the regional network Prolinnova–Andes (Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador) was created with the aims of promoting farmer innovation processes and exchanging experiences in participatory innovation development (PID). Since then, regional- and national-level activities to promote local innovation were carried out, i.e., two regional workshops (in 2005 and 2008), Field Day for Local Innovators in Bolivia (July 2008) and an International Seminar on Participatory Methodological Processes (Peru, May 2008), among others.
