Monitoring and evaluating innovation platforms in livestock value chains

Growing local and informal markets in Asia and Africa provide both challenges and opportunities for smallholders. In developing countries, market failures often lead to suboptimal performance of the value chains and limited and inequitable participation of the poor.

In recent years, innovation platforms have been promoted as mechanisms to stimulate and support multistakeholder collaboration in the context of research for development. They are recognized as having the potential to link value chain actors, and enhance communication and collaboration to overcome market failures.

This paper sets out a monitoring and evaluation framework to understand and assess the performance of innovation platforms in the context of pro-poor value chains.
