Andrea Gardeazabal. (1/4/2020). Process of development of network of on-field, multiscale innovation and validation sites. Mexico: International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT).
This report includes the description of the main actors of the networks that have started around the CLCA project in LAC, the characterization of some of the incipient relationships between them, and the physical infrastructure where interactions occur. In order to achieve this, the following will be considered: a) Agricultural production: actors in the production chain who are directly involved in cultivation and services required for implementation (farmers, extension systems, input suppliers). b) Scientific development: academic institutions, NARs, and independent scientists involved in obtaining, collecting and generating information to create innovations and new knowledge. c) Government and public policy: national, state and regional government agencies who manage and implement programs and initiatives regarding rural and agricultural communities (long-term programs, local and national governments, international agencies). d) Consumption and commercialization: public and private entities involved in the buying, distribution and commercialization of agricultural production (companies, intermediaries, consumers).
