The TAP-AIS project is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations.
The project evolves from the experience of the EU-funded Capacity Development for Agricultural Innovation Systems (CDAIS) project, which successfully tested and validated the TAP Common Framework on capacity development for agricultural innovation systems in eight countries (Angola, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Honduras, Laos and Rwanda).
The TAP-AIS project is developed under the EU initiative “Development Smart Innovation through Research in Agriculture (DeSIRA): Towards climate-relevant Agricultural and Knowledge Innovation Systems”.
The objective of DeSIRA is to contribute to climate-relevant, productive and sustainable transformation of agriculture and food systems in low and middle-income countries.
DeSIRA supports research and innovation projects in Africa, Asia, Latin America and contributes primarily to the achievement of the following SDGs.
