PROmoting Local INNOVAtion (PROLINNOVA)
PROLINNOVA is an international multi-stakeholder program established to build a global learning and advocacy network for promoting local innovation in ecologically-oriented agriculture and natural resources management (NRM). The programme focuses on recognizing the dynamics of indigenous knowledge (IK) and learning how to strengthen the capacities of smallholder farmers to adjust to changing conditions in order to develop and adapt their own site-appropriate systems and institutions of resource management to attain food security, sustain their livelihoods and safeguard the environment. The programme builds on and seeks to scale up farmer-based research and development approaches that start with discovering how farmers (innovators) carry out informal experiments to develop and test new ideas for improved use of natural resources, to increase production, to conserve the environment and to solve any other social problem they are facing. The key issues that are addressed by the program include the following:
