Agriculture Innovation Systems (Self-paced)

Agriculture Innovation Systems (Self-paced)

Meeting rising global demand for food and responding to changes such as climate change, globalization, and urbanization will thus require good policy, sustained investments, and innovation – not business as usual. Agricultural innovation enables the agriculture sector, farmers and rural entrepreneurs to adapt rapidly when challenges occur and to respond readily when new opportunities arise – for example in the fields of technology and markets. While investments in public research, extension, education, and their links with one another have elicited high returns and pro-poor growth, these investments alone have not elicited innovation at the pace or on the scale required to meet the challenges. Innovation takes place in an innovation systems context. Besides a strong capacity in R&D, components of effective agricultural innovation system (AIS) include collective action and coordination, the exchange of knowledge among diverse actors, the technical and soft skills, incentives and resources available to form partnerships and develop businesses, and enabling conditions that make it possible for actors to innovate. The stand-alone, facilitated (by the OLC or by partner organizations in developed and developing countries), on-line course will engage adult learners using a dynamic, online learning approach that connects users to the leading approaches to AIS, as defined by the approved content of the Sourcebook. Reflective activities within each module will draw on personal experiences, collegial messages, case studies, activities and interactive media elements which will fully engage users with the learning content and demonstrate key issues in AIS. The course can also be taken without facilitation – the self-assessed activities will help users prepare for final on-line quizzes that determine successful course completion.

Dear Sir/Madam, I am Khang, from Green Edu JSC., a social enterprise working to improve startup ecosystem and human capital for sustainable agriculture and development in Vietnam. We are building a reliable and effective information channel for farmers and youths in Vietnam, initiated by a project to translate useful books and resources. We have already received permission from FAO, World Bank, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, and other organizations to translate several books. We found that this course, Agriculture Innovation System, is a truly valuable resource, that would support the agriculture ecosystem in Vietnam greatly. Therefore, we would like to ask for your permission to translate the content of this course into Vietnamese for non-profit purpose. We already finished translating the Agriculture Innovation System book, with permission from Ms Mayya Revzina, the Publishing Rights and Copyright Officer. As we hope to produce a proper translated edition, may we also ask the staff at OLC/WB for the source files of the course (e.g. videos, images and quizzes)? The final version will be available freely online for public use, and all credits go to OLC/WB for the content and kind support. I would be happy to answer any of your questions. Please find more information about our organization here: https://greenedu.vn/en/ Many thanks and warm regards, -- Khang Nguyen (Ms.) Value Chain Associate khang.nguyen@greenedu.vn (+84) 28 6275 3792 I contact@greenedu.vn R4-08, Đường số 2, P.
