At the Second Triennial Conference of the Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR) on 22–24 May 2003 in Dakar, Senegal, PROLINNOVA was presented both as a poster and as a PowerPoint paper by Monica Kapiriri (more..) during the session on “Rural Knowledge Systems and Innovation Processes”. Monica was formerly with Environmental Alert in Uganda and is now with the Aga Khan Foundation based in Tanzania and is the spokesperson for NGOs in the GFAR Steering Committee. Already when she was a member of the NGO Committee (NGOC) of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) in 2000–2002, she was involved in developing the concept for PROLINNOVA. Environmental Alert is now the NGO in Uganda that is facilitating the multi-stakeholder process of designing a PROLINNOVA programme in that country. more..
