Adoption of Agricultural Innovations through Non-Traditional Financial Services

INNOVATE – Adoption of Agricultural Innovations through Non-Traditional Financial Services, is a three-year initiative implemented by MEDA and funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). With a portfolio of 10 projects, MEDA is assessing the potential of non-traditional finance to enable large scale adoption of agricultural innovations among women and men smallholder farmers in South Asia, South America and East Africa.

The INNOVATE learning series features a series of publications, blog posts, and learning events based on core themes emerging from the portfolio, including customer centricity, smallholder products and services, smallholder household decision-making, and policy and regulatory transformation.

The learning series is tailored for policymakers, donors and practitioners supporting smallholder farmers and agricultural finance initiatives with the goal of providing actionable research and insight for policymaking and program design.
