Facilitating capacity development for agricultural innovation

Piloting the Common Framework in 8 countries

The concepts and tools of the TAP Common Framework are being applied in eight countries as part of an initiative called CDAIS, or Capacity Development for Agricultural Innovation Systems. The countries concerned are Angola, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Honduras, Laos and Rwanda.

CDAIS was launched in 2015 with the financial support from the European Union. The initiative is implemented by Agrinatura, a grouping of European universities and research organizations supporting agricultural development, and FAO.

CDAIS is bringing together key stakeholders in agricultural innovation of each pilot country to assess capacity development needs with the aim of promoting innovation that meets the needs of small farmers, small and medium-sized agribusiness and consumers.
