Sharing Agricultural Innovation Between India and Africa

Feed the Future India-Africa Agriculture and Natural Resource Management Innovation Sharing Platform was a unique South-South collaboration that aimed to build, demonstrate and test a scalable model of transferring agricultural innovations from India to Africa.

The. U.S. Agency for International Development has identified Kenya and Malawi as the initial countries for the pilot, testing the mechanism of transferring low-cost innovations developed by India’s farmers over the last two decades. To develop and test the model, TechnoServe’s project team transferred and piloted five agricultural innovations with the aim of scaling and institutionalizing the transfer process. It also demonstrated the scalability of at least three Indian agricultural innovations that strengthen value chains in Malawi and Kenya.
