A member of CGIAR Innovation Platform?

Innovation platform

Innovation Platform (IP) approach facilitate the rapid dissemination and adoption of best proven technologies of cowpea

IP is an articulated process between different actors for a common interest and equitable/gender sensitive access to resources, markets and value added (income).

Inventory the functional platforms in locality selected in each country of the project

Identify constraints and opportunities of actors in innovation platforms in cowpea value chains

Assess the needs of actors in terms of capacity of actors and sustainability of the innovation platforms within Vc

Ghana= Tamale (Northern, Upper East and West region)Mali = Koutiala (Sikasso), MoptiSenegal = Thies, Louga FatickNigeria = Kano Katsina Sokoto

Selection criteria: Existence of FtF projectsMajor cowpea growing areasMarket access opportunities


A member of CGIAR consortiumwww.iita.orgMethodologyProjects in sites: Project "Feed The Future," WASP project, DONATA/ CORAF, Africa Rising in West Africa , WAAPP project, AGRA project and SARD-SC were exploredFocus group has been used to collect the information
