Meetings with national partners in Ethiopia began in 2016. On February 19, 2019, these partners and a large number of stakeholders gathered for the fourth annual Innovation Platform meeting in the capital of Addis Ababa. Such platforms provide a multi-stakeholder forum for participatory priority development, dialogue, and research-to-development linkages, and they ensure that the Lab’s research has practical relevance and leads to solid developmental impacts.
Here are some of the materials from the 2019 Innovation Platform. They relate to the public health, livestock, and nutrition sectors.
