The world is facing complex and unprecedented challenges in the agrifood systems, from feeding a growing population to addressing the impacts of climate change that call for innovative solutions using less resources and improve people’s livelihoods while “leaving no one behind”.
We at the Tropical Agriculture Platform (TAP), a G20 initiative to promote agricultural innovation in the tropics, hosted and led by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), with the financial contribution of the European Union, and with TAPipedia, the knowledge portal focused on capacities for agricultural innovation, are proud to launch a global call for innovation stories in agricultural innovation.
We believe that sharing and learning from the experiences of others is critical to advancing the agriculture sector, and we want to hear from people and organizations who are making a difference. Whether you are a farmer, researcher, entrepreneur, or any other individual or group who is working to transform agrifood systems in the face of current global challenges, we want to hear from you.
We are looking for stories that demonstrate how innovative practices and technologies are being used to address challenges in the agriculture sector, such as improving yields, reducing the use of harmful chemicals, increasing resilience to climate change, and more. These stories on innovations (technological, organisational/institutional, social, and policy) in agrifood systems, should analyse the factors of success and more specifically focus on analysing the capacities needed for the innovation to happen and add value in the community or technical domain. The stories should demonstrate how innovative practices have resulted in concrete, tangible benefits for farmers, communities, and the environment. To get inspiration you might wish to read about the innovation stories coming from different countries, like Burkina Faso, Guatemala, and many others from the CDAIS project.
You can submit your story by filling out a short form that includes information about your innovative stories and the impact and results they have achieved.. You can submit your story by filling out a short form that includes information about your innovative stories and the impact and results they have achieved.
By sharing your story on TAPipedia, you will not only help to inspire and inform others, but you will also contribute to the growing body of knowledge about innovation in agriculture and how they can be used to create more sustainable and resilient food systems.
So, if you have a story to share, we encourage you to take part in this global call for innovations in agriculture. Together, we can make a difference and help to build a better future for the world.
The Global Call will be open until the 30 November 2023. Entry submitted after that date will be considered for the next Call.
