Marco Común de la Plataforma de Agricultura Tropical (TAP)


El Marco Común propone un enfoque práctico para el Desarrollo de Capacidades (DC) para la Innovación Agrícola.


Conceptual Diagram of an Agricultural Innovation Systems
The 3 dimensions of Capacity Development
The 4 + 1 Capacities
El Marco se compone de tres volúmenes y proporciona conceptos, principios, metodologías y herramientas para una mejor comprensión de la arquitectura de los SIA, para evaluar las necesidades de DC y para planificar, implementar, monitorear y evaluar las intervenciones de DC.


Manuales de desarrollo de capacidades


Esta colección de manuales para instructores se produjo como parte del proyecto Desarrollo de capacidades para los sistemas de innovación agrícola (CDAIS). El proyecto fue implementado por Agrinatura-EEIG y la FAO en asociación con socios nacionales de ocho países piloto y se centró en fortalecer la capacidad de los países y las principales partes interesadas para innovar en sistemas agrícolas complejos, logrando así mejores medios de vida rurales.


Herramientas de la TAP

La FAO, en colaboración con Agrinatura, ha producido una serie de hojas informativas que describen herramientas y enfoques para promover proyectos de desarrollo de capacidades para sistemas de innovación agrícola (AIS). Las herramientas están diseñadas con miras a la implementación práctica de los principios del Marco Común de la Plataforma de Agricultura Tropical (TAP). Estas herramientas han sido usadas en el proyecto CDAIS.

APIRAS APAARI Good Practice n.3. Multi-stakeholder approaches for enhancing command area water productivity In India

The Water Resources Department, Government of Maharashtra, responsible for building infrastructure and delivering water to farmers and other users, has so far created irrigation potential of about 5.3. million hectares and the current utilization is about 76%. About 5000 Water User Associations (WUAs) have been established to manage the water supply within their designated areas. However, the water use efficiency and productivity is adversely impacting the overall water security of the state. 2030 Water Resources Group (WRG), a global partnership program hosted within the Water Global Practice...

APIRAS APAARI Good Practice n.2. Strengthening capacities to innovate through North-South collaborative agricultural research in Papua New Guinea

Researchers at the University of Queensland have worked on research projects in the PNG Highlands since 2005. These projects were, and are, applied research to manage soil fertility in sweetpotato-based cropping systems in the Highlands. They were funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research. Our key collaborator was PNG’s National Agricultural Research Institute. Although the projects were in the field of Soil Science, specifically soil fertility management, our approach has always been multidisciplinary. The timeline of project management has always been a small sc...

APIRAS APAARI Good Practice n.5. Strengthening last mile service delivery to support smallholder farmers in India

India is witnessing dwindling gains from agriculture for the smallholder farmers because of high cost of inputs, changing climate impacting production, fluctuating market prices of outputs, and weak delivery of services at the last mile. The value share of farmers in the commodity supply chain needs to be increased to ensure that farming remains a remunerative livelihood option. There has to be a wider acceptance of the fact that the country needs partnerships among multiple players with complementary knowledge and expertise for its agricultural development. Transform Rural India Foundation (T...

APIRAS APAARI Good Practice n.4. Enhancing organizational and functional capacities of producer organizations in India through strategic collaboration

In order to bring about sustainable transformation and business orientation into the Indian Agriculture sector, there have been schematic interventions to promote unique forms of social capital for farmers, called Farmer Producer organizations (FPOs). Many stakeholders, particularly NGOs, are involved in promoting and handholding these FPOs in a target-driven mode by promoting a large number of such institutions across the country. Although these institutions represent a strong form of social capital, their capacity as smallholder farmer members of FPOs is limited in terms of business acumen,...

APIRAS APAARI Good Practice n.6. Promoting community-driven innovations in the forested uplands of the Philippines

The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) financed the second Cordillera Highland Agricultural Resource Management Project (CHARMP2), in areas where poverty is most severe among indigenous peoples in the highlands of the Cordillera Region in northern Philippines. The aim is to reduce poverty and improve the livelihoods of indigenous peoples living in farming communities in the mountainous project area. The indigenous peoples consist of many tribes whose main economic activity is agriculture. The project demonstrated how development can be supported and sustained without advers...
