The above link is a write up of a meeting last month hosted by the IREN, the Inter Region Economic Network entitled “Improving the life of smallholder farmers through services” http://www.irenkenya.com/modules/events/index.php?event_title_id=35
A report of the meeting talked about reviewing service delivery to small holder farmers and discussion around commercialisation of agricultural ideas as a strategy to address the food crisis in Africa. I would like to find out more about this – I am particularly interested to know how IP considerations would be catered for, particularly if these agricultural ideas were from publicly funded institutions such as the CG?
