Agricultural Innovation Systems: Part 2

issuu.com/world.bank.publications/docs/9780821386842_...
Managing the ability of agriculture to meet rising global demand and to respond to the changes and opportunities will require good policy, sustained investments, and innovation - not business as usual. Investments in public Research and Development, extension, education, and their links with one another have elicited high returns and pro-poor growth, but these investments alone will not elicit innovation at the pace or on the scale required by the intensifying and proliferating challenges confronting agriculture. Experience indicates that aside from a strong capacity in Research and Development, the ability to innovate is often related to collective action, coordination, the exchange of knowledge among diverse actors, the incentives and resources available to form partnerships and develop businesses.

Collective action for market chain innovation in the Andes

issuu.com/iniciativapapandina/docs/collective_action_...
The Papa Andina network employs collective action in two novel approaches for fostering market chain innovation. The participatory market chain approach (PMCA) and stakeholder platforms engage small potato producers together with market agents and agricultural service providers in group activities to identify common interests, share market knowledge and develop new business opportunities. These forms of collective action have generated commercial, technological and institutional innovations, and created new market niches for Andean native potatoes grown by poor farmers in remote highland areas. These innovations have benefited small farmers as well as other market chain actors. This paper describes Papa Andina’s experiences with collective action for market chain innovation. It then discusses the implications of these experiences for the understanding of collective action and the policy implications for research and development organizations.

Working in Concert: Coordination and Collaboration in International Media Development

issuu.com/cima-publications/docs/cima-working-in-conc...
Over the last two decades, as the international media development field has grown, one goal has remained elusive: a culture of coordination and collaboration among those in the media development community. Coordination and cooperation continues at the international level to be a search for common ground between those who view the media primarily as a tool to project national or organizational interests and those who believe embedding a journalistic process–verification, independence, comprehensiveness, and monitoring power–should be the foremost goal of media development. This report examines how fundamental changes in the development marketplace and a revolution in communication caused by digital technologies have created a moment–whether of opportunity or necessity–to address this issue.

Revolt and Crisis in Greece

issuu.com/occupied_london/docs/ol-revolt_and_crisis_i...
How does a revolt come about and what does it leave behind? What impact does it have on those who participate in it and those who simply watch it?

Revolt and Crisis in Greece: Between a Present Yet to Pass and a Future Still to Come is a collective attempt to grapple with these questions.
