Pound, Barry, Massawe, Kasindei and Fazl, Fazluddin (2007) Innovation partnerships for effective adaptive research and technology uptake.

The three case studies presented here are concerned with the partnerships and institutional frameworks needed for effective and sustainable uptake of technologies and processes. The Nepal case study is from 2003, the Tanzania study from 2005 and the Afghanistan study from 2006. In each case the technology or process has arisen from a different source, and each case is based on different objectives, exposing the need for flexibility in defining the appropriate actors and conditions for any given situation. In the first case technologies were identified by research organizations through a conventional research process, in the second case by community-based farmer research groups and in the third case the process under investigation was introduced from another country where it had evolved into a “package of practices” that needed to be questioned during its introduction into a new situation.
