Booklet on farmer-led joint research published!

This is the third in a series of booklets that collect experiences of Prolinnova partners from diverse countries in promoting participatory agricultural research and development in ways that enhance local innovation capacities. The nine case studies in the booklet describe how Prolinnova partners have tried to bring different stakeholders – scientists, extensionists, development agents and others – to support farmers in further improving or adapting innovations. Based on these experiences, the booklet draws some important lessons for ensuring that farmers take the lead in multi-stakeholder processes of agricultural research and development.
