Post-harvest innovation systems in South Asia: key features and implications for capacity development

Munish Tiwari, Tarun Tayal


Post-harvest research and development (R&D) offers the potential to support the livelihoods of poor people in developing countries as: farmers, small-scale agro processing entrepreneurs, off-farm laborers, and consumers of food and agricultural products. It is increasingly recognized, however, that efforts to strengthen post-harvest systems in developing countries will need to pay much greater attention to the institutional environment in which change takes place (Hall et al. 2002a). This institutional environment does not just concern the organizations involved, but more importantly the norms, routines, and rules that govern the way organizations operate and interact with each other.

Keywords: Post-harvest R&D, [IDE(I)], Institutional innovation, HORTICULTURE TECHNOLOGY R&D, Agricultural Research.
