Multi-stakeholder innovation platforms are one of the most important mechanisms employed in the Livestock and Fish program to build alliances and engagement with different research and development partners. They are also important as potential ways to build momentum to test and apply promising technologies and interventions at scale.

The 5-minute film below tells the story of the platform and how it is helping dairy farmers improve their milk production and sales:
