Farmer Access to Innovation Resources (FAIR 2): main findings and lessons learnt in piloting LISFs in Nepal

LI-BIRD, the lead NGO of the Prolinnova Nepal network was the first to pilot innovation funds within Prolinnova. This idea was elaborated and nurtured through the Farmer Access to Innovation Resources project that was rolled out in several countries in the network including Nepal. The experiences, findings, challenges and lessons are documented in the report, Farmer Access to Innovation Resources (FAIR 2): main findings and lessons learnt in piloting LISFs in Nepal. The report also provides some pointers to how LISFS could be institutionalised through a national innovation fund under the leadership on the Ministry of Agriculture and Development.
