Innovation Challenge 2021 – Advisory for Agroecology

GIZ’s Innovation Challenge 2021 aims to identify and promote new and innovative concepts, ideas, and tools in agricultural advisory that have the potential to spread agroecological approaches widely.

Advances in the digitalization of agriculture bring about new opportunities for sharing complex and context-specific knowledge and for making agricultural advisory services more participatory and integrative. This becomes especially relevant in challenging times, such as in the face of the current Corona pandemic, in which agricultural advisory services have limited opportunities to reach out physically to smallholder farmers.

The Innovation Challenge is open to consortia of public, private and non-profit organizations with long-term experiences in agricultural extension and advisory (incl. universities, research institutions, NGOs, farmers associations, public and private extension services, start-ups, and SMEs). Consortia must be represented by an international institution as the main applicant.
