Scaling up local capacity to innovate: Year 1 report

Year 1 of the 3-year Misereor-funded project Scaling Up Local Capacity to Innovate for Food and Nutrition Security (SULCI-FaNS) was completed in September 2020. Prolinnova Country Platforms (CPs) in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ghana and Kenya are engaged in strengthening the innovation capacities of small-scale farmers, particularly women and women’s groups, to improve food and nutrition security and resilience of local communities. They are also building the capacity of other stakeholders in agricultural research and development in promoting local innovation and farmer-led joint research and seeking to scale up this approach. SULCI-FaNS supports activities in the West & Central Africa and Eastern & Southern Africa subregions working toward regionalisation of the Prolinnova network in Africa. The Year 1 report describes achievements at these different levels.
