"Innovation for sustainable and resilient agri-food and territorial development in Latin America and the Caribbean"

FONTAGRO supports the creation of Regional Public Goods through the co-financing of innovation platforms. With this goal in mind, the organization is launching this call in order to identify the best project proposals whose results will generate concrete evidence of “how to promote sustainable and resilient agri-food and territorial development through the addition of value to local agri-food chains in LAC.” Our aim is to co-finance initiatives whose potential impact will demonstrably improve the life quality of families, while promoting the development of sustainable and resilient agri-food and territorial models. The proposed innovations must be aligned with FONTAGRO’s 2020-2025 Medium-Term Plan (MTP) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

The objective of the call is to identify project proposals that provide concrete evidence of “how to promote sustainable and resilient agri-food and territorial development through the addition of value in the LAC region.”

This call addresses strategy II of the 2020-2025 MTP, which seeks to increase the number of technologies and innovations with high potential for adoption and impact on the sustainability of farming systems, agroecosystems and the territory. To fulfil the objective of the call, initiatives must be based on prior and validated scientific knowledge, and must either promote new innovations or validate promising or successful existing ones.
