Advocating safe abortion: outcomes of a multi‐country needs assessment on the potential role of national societies of obstetrics and gynecology
In 2019 the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) embarked on an initiative that aims to strengthen the capacity of 10 national societies of obstetrics and gynecology (ObGyn) in advocacy for safe abortion. In 2018 needs assessments that entailed a desk study, interviews, and stakeholder workshops were conducted in Benin, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Panama, Peru, Uganda, and Zambia. The general aim of the needs assessments was to gain a deeper understanding of the contextual situation and identify the needs of ObGyn societies in relation to safe abortion advocacy. This paper provides a cross- country analysis of the outcomes of the needs assessments and reflects on the capabilities, barriers, and opportunities to strengthen this role of ObGyn societies.

Improving the living conditions of local communities through Participatory Innovation Development
The intervention areas of the Farmers’ Research Network (FaReNe) project in the Ségou and Mopti regions are experiencing food insecurity problems caused by poor soil fertility. It was to tackle this problem that the Participatory Innovation Development (PID) approach has been used in order to identify and enhance the value of local knowledge in the field of agro-ecological intensification. It is an approach that stimulates the creativity of the farming community to contribute to the improvement of its own living conditions. It is based on a multi-takeholder partnership that includes farmers, agricultural advisors and researchers. It is an approach that puts the innovative farmer at the heart of the process.
