The DONATA project in sub-Saharan Africa aimed to improve livelihoods and increase economic growth for resource poor farmers. This goal was approached via establishment of multi-stakeholder platforms referred to as Innovation Platforms for Technology Adoption (IPTAs). These multi-stakeholder platforms including National Agriculture Research Institutes (NARIs), non-governmental organizations, community based organizations, farmer organizations, private sector, public sector extension agents and universities. All these together brought scaling out and up of OFSP technologies along the value chain.
