Description: 

The paper sets out the general concepts and principles of the Agricultural Innovation Systems approach, and its application to agricultural research and development, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. It is intended for those interested in applying new approaches to research with farmers, NGOs and the private sector that lead to developmental outcomes. The briefing papers in this volume were commissioned by the Conseil Ouest et Centre Africain pour la Recherche et le Développement Agricoles / The West and Central African Council for Agricultural Research and Development (CORAF/WECARD) during the SCARDA (Strengthening Capacity for Agicultural Research and Development in Africa) Inception phase. They are the products of consultation on five of the most important issues that African agricultural research and development institutions will have to address during the SCARDA Implementation Phase.
