Additional Information

This guideline is collaborative output from the CGIAR Research Program Dryland Systems, Eastern and Southern Africa. We believe that innovation platforms (IPs) are a powerful vehicle for implementing and coordinating systems research and for sharing lessons with the wider research for development community. The guideline aims at handy information for scientists of different disciplines to understand the IP concept, its advantages and challenges, important principles for implementing and coordinating systems research in the drylands. It provides valuable information for research, development and other actors.We thank Nelson Mango, CIAT, and Joyce Njoloma, ICRAF, for internal review of this document.
