Summary for Project title: R8310: Institutional learning and change: a
capacity development approach to exploring and strengthening
post-harvest innovation systems in South Asia and R8500: Institutions
for poverty reduction: understanding and enabling institutional changes
that promote pro-poor post-harvest innovation.
New knowledge is shedding light on how pro-poor institutional learning
and change occur, and how to encourage and promote them. It includes
syntheses of principles and procedures as well as lessons that can be
useful to a range of actors. These insights are part of a pro-poor
innovation framework that can be used to guide the application of
knowledge, technology and information for pro-poor economic and
productive impact. Numerous organisations are using the framework to
guide policy making for change in norms, habits and practices, including
the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, International Assessment of
Agricultural Science and Technology for Development, International
Livestock Research Institute, Institute of Rural Management (India), as
well as several civil society organizations.
