Webinar date: 1 March 2017 | Time: 14:00 Rome time
Duration: 1.5 hours max.
As one in a series of GFAR webinars, the Tropical Agriculture Platform (TAP), a Partner in GFAR, is bringing together several presenters to engage the agri-food research and innovation community around the topic of capacity development. TAP is an active partner in GFAR’s efforts in fostering collective initiatives to improve capacity in agri-food research and innovation. The main focus of TAP is the development of national capacities for agricultural innovation in tropical developing countries, where the capacity gap is especially wide. By helping to bridge the capacity gap, TAP aims to pave the way for agricultural innovations that meet the demands of its principal users – small farmers, small and medium-sized agribusinesses and consumers.
In this webinar, TAP Secretariat will share a framework and process being applied with its partners and Partners in GFAR to facilitate capacity development for agricultural innovation; “innovation facilitators” who are working on the ground will share their observations and learnings in their country contexts.
