Publication: Farmers in the Driver’s Seat


KIT and the Association for Strengthening Agricultural Research in Eastern and Central Africa (ASARECA) published a joint publication in which farmers were put in the driver’s seat. Within the programme  ‘farmer empowerment for innovation in smallholder agriculture’ (FEISA) farmers were provided tools and skills to enhance collaboration with private enterprises, as well as service providers, in multi-stakeholder ‘innovation triangles’ within value chains for the benefit of smallholder farmers.

The FEISA project  ran from 2010-2013 and aimed to empower smallholder farmers in Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya and Rwanda to improve their productivity in selected value chains.
