    Also available in:

    Technologies and practices for small agricultural producers (TECA) is an FAO online platform for the exchange and sharing of agricultural technologies and practices for smallholder farmers and producers. The platform facilitates the transformation process in rural areas by making relevant and innovative technologies available to farmers in the field. In doing so, TECA further enhances the access to knowledge of smallholder producers in rural areas increasing their capacity to innovate and contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). On the occasion of the Salon International De L' Agriculture et des Ressources Animales D' Abidjan". SARA 2019- Smart Agriculture & Technological Innovations. Taking place in Abidjan from 22 November to 1 December 2019, together with the FAO Country Office, TECA will promote a wide range of successful innovations of farmers' agricultural technologies and practices that address smallholder farmers' challenges. It aims at illustrating how sharing knowledge may unlock innovation throughout the farming process. The TECA poster will raise awareness of the FAO TECA Platform, aiming at facilitating access and sharing of its practices and technologies and fill a gap in assisting partners in reaching out to smallholder farmers.

    Innovation is the process whereby individuals or organizations bring new or existing products, processes or ways of organization into use for the first time in a specific context. Innovation in agriculture cuts across all dimensions of the production cycle along the entire value chain - from crop, forestry, fishery or livestock production to the management of inputs and resources to market access. This book represents the proceedings of the first International Symposium on Agricultural Innovation for Family Farmers which FAO organized at its headquarters in Rome, Italy, on 21–23 November 2018. FAO convened the symposium to provide inspiration for innovation actors and decision makers to unlock the potential of innovation to drive socio economic growth, ensure food and nutrition security, alleviate poverty, improve resilience to changing environments and thereby achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. It was attended by 540 participants, including 286 delegates from 92 member countries. The proceedings provide a record of the main highlights of the symposium, including the opening plenary session; high-level ministerial segment; innovation fair, with 20 success stories of agricultural innovation; and six highly interactive parallel sessions and two special events dedicated to youth and to chefs and family farmers. During these different sessions, participants shared their experiences, knowledge and examples of agricultural innovation in different sectors; they also discussed the drivers and key factors contributing to success, as well as the main constraints for agricultural innovation.

Aleandri”, Rome, Italy, and the BPractices project, have worked together, with the support of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations’ Animal Health Service, to develop and publish on TECA, a set of 11 “TECA technologies” on the main bee diseases and bee health. The information sheets are designed following the TECA standards, to help beekeepers, and those providing advisory services to the beekeepers, correctly identify honey bee diseases, apply the correct treatment and to prevent them. The TECA thematic catalogue "Good beekeeping practices: Main bee diseases" groups the 11 practices together in a printed document for distribution among potential users and partners of TECA.
