Global food security is facing unprecedented challenges to feed the growing population with less environmental impact. Improving food production capacity by empowering smallholders is critical to address this issue. Science and Technology Backyards (STB), as an innovative approach to building multi-actors agricultural innovation platforms (MAIPs), are hubs located in rural areas that link the scientific community with farmers’ community to facilitate information exchange and technological innovation for achieving sustainable intensification. The STB approach has provided a promising systematic and holistic approach for agricultural green development (AGD). Therefore, we organise this webinar to introduce the STB as a novel approach to building MAIPs to empower smallholders for sustainable crop production.
