    Sustainable agricultural innovation is a social learning process: it requires collective decisions and adaptive interactions, which gradually lead to change. Into an Agricultural Innovation System (AIS), based on dynamic networks and knowledge flows, communication plays a central role in facilitating stakeholders’ participation, negotiating between national priorities and local demands, enhancing institutional coordination and strengthening agricultural service provision. This study presents th e institutional and policy framework of the Bolivian AIS, and examines the demand–supply dynamics of agricultural information services in the country. The author assesses the methods and approaches currently used, and looks at opportunities and constraints for the development of demand-driven and participatory agricultural advisory services, based on the adoption of ComDev methods and tools.

    The Program on Participatory Research and Gender Analysis (PRGA) was the fifth Systemwide Initiative (SWI) approved by TAC in the 1990s. The PRGA Program traces its origin to a six‐day international seminar and planning workshop in 1996 with stakeholders from more than 50 institutions (IARCS, NARS, and NGOs). CIAT was designated as the Convening Center and the proposal from the planning workshop was co‐sponsored by CIMMYT, ICARDA, and IRRI. The Program began to implement its work plan in April 1997. Throughout its existence, the PRGA has been guided by its programmatic goal “to improve the ability of the CGIAR system and other collaborating institutions to develop technology which alleviates poverty, improves food security, and protects the environment with greater equity” and its programmatic purpose “ to assess and develop methodologies and organizational innovations for gender sensitive participatory research, and operationalize their use in plant breeding, cro p and natural resource management.”
