The Tropical Agriculture Platform (TAP)

Enhancing knowledge exchange for agricultural innovation

TAPipedia, developed within the context of Tropical Agriculture Platform (TAP), is an information sharing system designed to enhance knowledge exchange in support of Capacity Development (CD) for Agricultural Innovation Systems (AIS). TAPipedia aims to be a global information system for good CD practices, innovation outputs, success stories and lesson learned.

Facilitation, learning, documentation and knowledge management

TAPipedia allows TAP partners and other stakeholders to share their own applied and context specific CD for AIS resources and to discover such knowledge from different sources, partners and regions. TAPipedia also assist TAP members to present, explain and promote the Common Framework on CD for AIS, so that it may be more easily tested, improved, adopted and implemented by stakeholders.

Ultimately, TAPipedia puts focus on facilitation, learning, documentation and knowledge management to enable innovation. And by promoting innovation, TAPipedia will be a key asset to fulfill TAP's goal of increasing farmers’ income, improving food security and allowing for a sustainable management of natural resources.
