In 2005, the regional network Prolinnova–Andes (Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador) was created with the aims of promoting farmer innovation processes and exchanging experiences in participatory innovation development (PID). Since then, regional- and national-level activities to promote local innovation were carried out, i.e., two regional workshops (in 2005 and 2008), Field Day for Local Innovators in Bolivia (July 2008) and an International Seminar on Participatory Methodological Processes (Peru, May 2008), among others.

Prolinnova-Bolivia report for 2018

In 2018, Prolinnova–Bolivia partners were interested in the experiences of African Country Platforms in working with Local Innovation Support Funds/Facilities (LISFs). One of the partners, PRODII, arranged that documents on LISF be translated into Spanish, and the partners agreed to try out LISFs in Bolivia. World Neighbors drew up a proposal with a budget from the partner organisations, and implementation is now planned. See the 2-page 2018 report in Spanish and a one-page English translation, which also includes other initiatives of Prolinnova–Bolivia.
