Influencing policy toward farmer-led innovation approaches

Within the framework of the CLIC-SR project funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, the four Country Platforms involved - in Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda - examined their past experiences in trying to influence policy to become more favourable towards farmer-led research and innovation approaches. They drew lessons which should guide them in their policy-dialogue activities in efforts to create a more enabling environment for approaches that link local and scientific knowledge and innovation and thus strengthen the resilience of smallholder farmers to change - including climate change.
