Nepalese Innovation Fair

Learning from the National Farmer Innovation Fair in Nepal, 2009

The first national Farmer Innovation Fair (FIF) was held in Kathmandu, Nepal, on 2-4 May 2009. LI-BIRD (Local Initiatives for Biodiversity Research and Development), the local NGO that coordinates the Prolinnova network in Nepal, organised this event together with several partner organisations, with support from the Prolinnova International Secretariat at ETC Foundation in the Netherlands. The FIF was timed to coincide with the Innovation Asia-Pacific Symposium (IAPS), which brought together almost 100 innovation practitioners and policymakers from the Asia-Pacific region to discuss issues related to farmer innovation and innovation systems (http://www.prolinnova.net/iaps/about.html).
