The upcoming 10th Partners Assembly of the Tropical Agriculture Platform (TAP) from 21 to 23 November 2023 will promote knowledge exchange and learning around the theme: “Strengthening capacities to innovate toward agrifood system transformation”. In addition to the Partner Assembly, the meeting will also focus on the technical aspects of the capacity development of AIS to promote innovation at all levels.
The Tropical Agriculture Platform (TAP) is a G20 initiative, launched in 2012, with the mandate to work towards bridging the capacity gaps for agricultural innovation in the tropics. (https://www.fao.org/in…/tropical-agriculture-platform/ru/)
Its objective is to increase coherence and effectiveness of capacity development interventions for agricultural innovation systems, for sustainable change and impact at scale. TAP and its 52 Partners embrace an Agricultural Innovation Systems (AIS) perspective, acting as a multilateral and dynamic facilitation mechanism for better coherence and greater impact of capacity development interventions in AIS. To date, TAP achievements include joint development and piloting of its Common Framework on Capacity Development for AIS accompanied by practical tools and manuals; strengthening key organisations and policy makers in nearly 20 countries to integrate TAP approaches into national roadmaps, strategic plans, innovation programmes and projects; and enhancing joint learning through TAPipedia https://www.tapipedia.org/ an open knowledge-sharing system.
