  • Access and benefit-sharing policies for climate-resilient seed systems

    Working Paper Series 2017 – 8

    This study analyses what is actually happening at the national and subnational levels in terms of climate change and its impacts on particular crops; what experiences countries have had to date with regard to accessing, using and sharing benefits derived from genetic resources for climate change adaptation; and what kinds of ABS policy initiatives or reforms could help those countries to make better use of genetic diversity for climate change adaptation in the future.This information is critical for identifying potential future interventions at a regional or sub-regional level, and making farmer-managed seed systems more climate resilient.

  • Do theories of change enable innovation platforms and partnerships to navigate towards impact?

    Theories of change (ToCs) are increasingly used to articulate pathways for interventions and to support learning. This responds to the recognition of the complexity of agricultural development. Through two examples, this paper examines how ToCs have enabled practitioners to navigate towards impact in settings characterized by a multiplicity of views from different actors on issues of joint concern.

  • The support for farmers-led seed systems in African seed laws

    Working Paper Series 2017 – 9

    The objective of this report is to compare regional and national seed laws in Africa, and analyse the extent to which they support (or undermine) farmers’ participation in seed systems. The paper pays particular attention to how or whether these laws recognize farmers as conservers and breeders of crop varieties, and as potential multipliers and providers of seed, through a range of potential means, from traditional exchanges at local levels to commercial sales at a national or even regional scale. Ultimately, we identified and analysed combinations of national policies, legislation, regulations and executive decrees regulating the seed sector in 35 African countries.

  • The contribution of AIS approaches to achieving impact at scale – intentions, realities and outlooks

    Working Paper Series 2017 – 10

    Agricultural innovation systems (AIS) approaches contribute to achieving impact at scale: this is still a statement which is questioned and not yet a widely accepted fact. Any claims supporting it are based on circumstantial evidence at best. This chapter discusses why this is the case, examining how AIS approaches primarily create a relevant context perspective in support of learning and partnership processes, rather than leading to targeted strategies for achieving impact at scale.

  • Agricultural Research for Development to Intervene Effectively in Complex Systems and the Implications for Research Organizations

    Agricultural research for development (AR4D) organizations can achieve greater impact by using complexityaware approaches, but for this to happen a more compelling case needs to be made to justify their use. Our contribution is to develop and test a generalizable complexity-aware theory of change of how AR4D fosters innovation.
