    The Tropical Agriculture Platform (TAP) is a multi-lateral and multi-sectoral facilitation mechanism that fosters collective action and uses a multi-pronged approach for capacity development in agriculture. In the Southeast Asian Region, it is being implemented by the the Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), which serves as knowledge broker and global convenor, by adding valu e to on-going initiatives in Agricultural Innovation Systems (AIS).

    Innovation has a high potential for increasing productivity and farmers’ income,l and consequently reducing poverty and improving food security. However several tropic al countries lack the resources and capacities to suitably develop their agricultural innovation systems. To address this gap, the g20 established the tropical agriculture platform (tap), a multilateral dynamic facilitation mechanism, which fosters better coherence and greater impact of capacity development for agricultural innova tion systems in tropical countries.

    The Tropical Agriculture Platform (TAP) is a multi-lateral, multi-sectoral, and dynamic facilitation mechanism conceived at the instance of G8 countries. The TAP seeks to add value to capacity development for agricultural innovation initiatives in tropical countries by fostering collective action, strengthening interactions, and avoiding duplication. As a first transaction of the Platform, regional needs assessments were commissioned in Africa, Asia and Central America to delineate key thrusts f or TAP interventions. FARA conducted the assessments in Africa. Fifteen least developed countries in Africa, five in each sub-region, were chosen for the needs assessments as follows: Comoros, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Rwanda and Tanzania (ASARECA); Angola, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia (CCARDESA); Benin, Burkina Faso, Gambia, Liberia, and Niger (CORAF/ECARD). The assessment methodology consisted of review of literature material on various aspects of agricultural innovations, stocktaking of c urrent capacity development initiatives, and key informant surveys using a structured questionnaire.
