Speakers at a development conference - agricultural technology transfer

Hello,

 

The Centre for Alleviation of Poverty through Sustainable Agriculture (CAPSA) based in Indonesia is organizing a high level policy dialogue on technology transfer for smallholder farmers to take place in February. We are trying to identify eminent speakers who have experience in agricultural or/and policy research and agricultural innovation systems. It could be somebody working as an independent consultant or for a research institute or an international organization.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thank you.

Dear Dan,

Thanks for your suggestion. I will google Mr Flor.  Let's connect through Linked In to better understand your new role.

Dear Martina: working now for the Islamic Dev bank and Indonesia is a member so perhaps I could assist but any request need to be routed through the Bank. One person to consider as well, with Asian experience in Indonesia is Sandy Flor. He did support IFAD work and I can voter for him. Cheers, Daan

Hi Martina,

Dr Biksham Gujja and Dr Vikram Akula can be one of the eminent speakers you are looking for. I worked with Dr Gujja during my stint in WWF. Find below the link to their profiles.

Hello Martina, 

you might want to have a look at the ELLA programme from Practical Action. Shortly, there will be a learning alliance on small scale farming and the sort of things you are interested in might be discussed there by people from different sectors and continents. 

Cheers

Philipp
