Within the framework of the EU-funded TAP-AIS project,1 FAO’s Office of Innovation in collaboration with the Asia-Pacific Association of Agricultural Research Institutions (APAARI) and the Asia Pacific Islands Rural Advisory Services Network (APIRAS) is organizing a regional training on Multi Stakeholder Policy Engagement targeting middle- and senior-level officials and managers in the agrifood sector from the Asia-Pacific region.
Date: 18-20 September 2023
Time: 13:00 – 15:30 (Bangkok Time)
The main objective of this training is to strengthen participants’ capacities to engage in policy processes so as to realize the potential of innovation in agrifood systems. Specifically, participants will learn to:
- Understand the role of policies in agrifood systems and in the context of agricultural innovation;
- Analyse policy issues and engage stakeholders around pressing policy issues;
- Organise multi-stakeholder policy dialogue; and
- Communicate with policy actors on key policy issues effectively.
FAO’s Office of Innovation – through its TAP-AIS project – has developed a multi-stakeholder approach to policy dialogue to address policy issues in the context of agricultural innovation systems (AIS).
