Improving the Living Conditions of Local Communities Through Participatory Innovation Development
The intervention areas of the farmer research network FaReNe project in the Ségou and Mopti regions are experiencing food insecurity problems caused by poor soil fertility. To tackle this problem, the Participatory Innovation Development (PID) approach has been used to identify and enhance the value of local knowledge of agroecological intensification.
This approach puts innovative farmers at the heart of the process and stimulates the creativity of the farming community to help improve its own living conditions. It is based on a multi-stakeholder partnership that includes farmers, agricultural advisers, and researchers.
