Policy brief: LISF enhances local innovation in Ethiopia

This 4-page brief is based on the experience of Prolinnova-Ethiopia in piloting Local Innovation Support Funds (LISFs) at three sites in the south, centre and north of Ethiopia. It shows how farmer-managed funds for local innovation and adaptation initiatives can be handled effectively at local level, add value to production and enhance local capacities. It draws attention to major implications for policy in Ethiopia and offers suggestions to policymakers.
