    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.

    To unleash countries' and regions’ potential for agricultural innovation, their human and institutional capacities need to be strengthened, and investments in capacity development (CD) for agricultural innovation systems (AIS) need to be scaled up. This Side Event aims to share successful examples of the partners of the TAP, a global, multi-stakeholder facilitation mechanism on CD for AIS, supported by the European Union and coordinated by FAO. The event will introduce the TAP approach of CD for AIS at the individual, organizational, and policy levels. Country/regional experiences in Africa, Latin America, and Asia, as well as insights from regional organizations on evidence-based policy dialogue and investments in agricultural innovation, will be presented.
