Small-scale and localised innovation is increasingly seen as an important part of the activites of marginal producers in the Global South.
Yet, given that such innovation is often difficult to identify and measure, it has rarely been explored as part of evidence-based policy.
A recently post on the Sheffield Institute of International Development (SIID) blog by Information School Lecturer Dr Chris Foster looks to explore how we might start to quantify and build evidence-based research on such activities. It is based on research undertaken with Kenyan horticulture farmers.
This blog accompanies a recently released paper on this topic written by Chris alongside ODI economist Aarti Krishnan.
