Policy brief on supporting local innovation for household food & nutrition security

A 4-page policy brief on “Supporting local innovation for household food and nutrition security” draws lessons from experiences in the project "Promoting local innovation for Food and Nutrition Security" (Proli-FaNS). This project was implemented in five countries – Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Kenya and Ghana – in the period 2016–19 and was funded by Misereor/Catholic Central Agency for Development Aid, Germany) through a grant from the “One World No Hunger” (SEWOH) initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

PID training for SULCI-FaNS anglophone partners

A key activity in the “Scaling Up Local Capacity to Innovate for Food and Nutrition Security” (SULCI-FaNS) project’s calendar for 2020 was a training in Participatory Innovation Development (PID) for partners from francophone and anglophone countries, namely Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ghana and Kenya. This project is a follow-on to the “Promoting local innovation for Food and Nutrition Security” (Proli-FaNS) project that was implemented in the period 2016–19 in these countries.

Joint learning through documentation of farmer–scientist collaboration

An important role of the Prolinnova network is facilitation of joint learning through analysis and documentation of the experiences made, thereby identifying good practice but also recognising weaknesses and room for improvement.
