International Farmer Innovation Fair & Conference, 8–10 April 2024, Nairobi, Kenya

With funding from the 11th Hour Project of the Schmidt Family Foundation, Prolinnova–Kenya will host an International Farmer Innovation Fair and Conference (IFIF&C) on 8–10 April 2024 in Nairobi, Kenya. Farmer innovators from 11 of Prolinnova’s multistakeholder Country Platforms (CPs) in Africa will showcase their innovations in person. A 2-hour virtual session on 9 April will allow also some farmer innovators in Asian CPs to show their work. Alongside the Fair on Day 1 of the IFIF&C, there will be panel discussions among stakeholders in agricultural research and development (ARD), including farmers, to bring their perspectives on farmer-led participatory innovation development (PID). Day 2 will be completely devoted to the Fair. On Day 3 there will also be a conference with keynote and poster presentations by ARD stakeholders about PID, culminating in a declaration on promoting local innovation and PID to develop good site-appropriate agroecology practices. The call for poster abstracts has been issued, with a submission deadline of Friday 23 February 2024.
