The project “use of Conservation agriculture in Crop-livestock systems (CLCA)” aims to sustainably increase production and enhance climate resilience of smallholder farmers in the Mixteca Alta of Oaxaca, Mexico. Component 2 of the project “Development of a delivery system/participatory farmer-led extension system to accelerate adoption” deals with the articulation of the innovation system model and a knowledge management (KM) strategy to ensure the design, development, and use of an effective delivery system for locally adapted CLCA systems and practices. This report describes the findings from a desk study on agricultural innovation, extension services and agricultural research in Mexico, as well as available national and regional statistics. It is enriched with semi-structured interviews performed in the field to understand the interactions and bottlenecks between major stakeholders in the country’s innovation system related with the maize and small ruminants’ sector.
