Creating Integrated Network of Sub-Regional Innovation Centers

Other Titles

Abstract

Solution Scenario Concept: Create an integrated network of “sub-Regional Innovation Centers” which will conduct action research and experimentation on technology and social solutions to smallholder information needs with special emphasis on the needs of women. RICs would pioneer new ways to 1) collect, digitize and assemble information from expert sources as well as smallholders themselves, 2) extract useable information from research data bases and other largely internet-based sources, and 3) disseminate information directly to smallholders and others in the smallholder information supply chain. The RIC mission would be threefold: 1) Scan and define new socio-tech opportunities including those which would require advance funding to develop, 2) develop and support a regional network of community knowledge workers who are capable of accessing and disseminating basic agricultural support information in their community, 3) implement promising technological opportunities supported by training of the key participants in the info supply system.

Description

WorldAgInfo Project Solution Scenario 2: Agricultural Extension. Based on the deliberations of participant groups in Workshop 1, the WorldAgInfo Design Team drafted a problems and solutions summary document (available within Section Three of the Final Report). This is one of several potential solution scenarios to emerge through that process. These were in turn used to inform proposed information projects generated by Workshop 2 participants in Livingstone, Zambia (available within Section Two of the Final Report).
