Call for identifying success stories on Agricultural Research for Development in Asia and the Pacific Region

APAARI has been a pioneer in documenting success stories in agricultural research and innovation systems in the Asia- Pacific region. So far we have published more than 40 success stories on diverse themes on  dissemination of agricultural technologies, practices and innovations  in the region. All success stories are published both in hard copy and digitally and can be accessed on our website.  For published success stories, please have a look at http://www.apaari.org/publications/apaari-success-stories .

In 2015-2016, APAARI plans to publish more success stories. We would, therefore, like to invite you to please identify topics/titles and authors for such success stories.  The success stories should cover successful generation, testing, adaptation and  adoption of improved/ novel technologies, practices and innovations (including policies, institutions changes and marketing systems) in the agriculture sector.

We will request the identified authors to submit a brief abstract of not more than 400 words  to Ms Chanerin Maneechansook, Program Assistant, at chanerin@apaari.org  by 31 May 2015.  The submission should provide some details of the success story including title of the paper, authors name(s) and institution, contact details, background of the problem, how successfully the technology/practice/innovation got generated and adopted, problems faced, factors responsible for success, and its impact /implications to various stakeholders.

Authors of selected stories will be contacted and provided a guideline for writing the full success story which should be about 50-60 pages in descriptive format. We will be very pleased to offer a token honorarium of US$ 2,000  to selected authors for writing the success story.

We look forward to your kind cooperation in identifying such success stories, and shall be grateful if you could kindly share this announcement with your partner organizations and extended stakeholders.
