Farmer innovators’ views on capacity to innovate

During the West African Farmer Innovation Fair on 15–16 May 2015 in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, Jean-Marie Diop on behalf of Prolinnova interviewed farmer exhibitors to gain insight into their perspectives of what enhances and constraints local innovation. 

A synthesis of the findings can be found in the report Les perceptions des paysans innovateurs sur la capacité à innover : notes d’entrevues à la Foire de l’innovation paysanne en Afrique de l’Ouest. The farmer innovators also give their recommendations about what would contribute to strengthening farmer-led innovation processes. An English translation of the report can be found here.
