Writing your innovation summary
Your summary should be more than a description of your innovation. Take a step back, look at your story from the perspective of an extension specialist, or someone working with communities in rural development. Describe the innovation, focusing specifically on who can benefit from it and in what type of agro-ecosystems? Answer the following questions:

  • Who can benefit?
  • How can it be put in to practice at a broad scale?
  • What are the specific benefits to communities, or to the planners considering using this practice?
  • Are there potential constraints t adoption (cost, complexity, specific skills needed, etc)? 

See examples of ideas and practices accepted in the MENARID innovations database.   

With these points in mind complete the form and submit your innovation.
