Summary

This Policy Brief identifies factors that facilitate or limit the effectiveness and per- formance of scientific research on agriculture (SRA) in terms of innovation and desired changes. Findings and the ensuing recommendations are based on an investigation of research-based innovations in six regional case studies with a Participatory Impact Pathway assessment approach. Institutional and policy frameworks have played important roles as either enabling or hindering factors. They were particularly important in raising funding for research as well as enabling product registration and marketing innovations. Policy recommendations focus on strengthening agricultural innovation support, engaging with the private sector, coordination of research and innovation policy, and better access to research data.
