Exploring local innovation in animal health

In May 2018, Swiss scientists from TPA (Tropical and Public Health Institute) made a quick inventory of some local innovations in animal health treatments in Burkina Faso and Ghana with a view to studying their effectiveness in terms of health and productivity. TPA and the Prolinnova platforms in the two countries are exploring possible collaboration, focusing on anti-parasitic and anti-microbial plants.

In 2017, the Country Platform in Burkina Faso continued to implement joint projects. It also made progress in reorganising how the platform functions, but efforts are still needed to make the platform more dynamic. See the annual report in French below.

La Plateforme Pays du Burkina Faso a continué en 2017 avec la mise en oeuvre des projets communs. Des progrès ont été également faits pour réorganiser le fonctionnement de la plateforme bien que des efforts restent encore à faire pour la rendre plus dynamique. Voir le rapport annuel.

Exchange visit to Mali between FaReNe project partners

For better sharing of experiences about farmer innovation, facilitating joint experimentation, setting up farmer innovator networks and managing Local Innovation Support Funds, an exchange visit between Burkina Faso and Mali was held on 6–8 October 2017 in the villages of Zeimbougou Mangoni, Nampasso, Kanouala, Nabougou and Nayo (Mali). The delegation from Burkina was made up of 10 persons: farmer innovators, women food processors and staff from Diobass, World Neighbors and Réseau MARP. The report below is in French.
