Research output: Thesisinternal PhD, WU

Abstract

Understanding agricultural innovation processes and recognizing the potential for catalysing them is crucial for many countries in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), including Kenya. This is because the smallholder dominated agricultural sector remains critical to realizing economic growth and poverty reduction goals. There is a growing focus in agricultural innovation studies on understanding how innovation processes are orchestrated and particularly the role of innovation intermediaries that have emerged as specialised actors that support such processes.
