Description

The primary focus of the project’s first year was on establishing it firmly into the local context, and on obtaining local buy-in and a firm commitment from all stakeholders. This required much work to create a common understanding of the project’s modus operandi. It was clear from the start that most local actors, including the government players on the ground, expected the normal linear approach to development aid. Farmers and other stakeholders expected the normal handouts and inputs. Although this created somefrustration, the Innovation Platform (IP) meetings soon changed attitudes and interest and enthusiasm increased, especially among farmers, small scale entrepreneurs, some market players and credit suppliers.
