Feed the Future Partnering for Innovation is a USAID and Fintrac Inc. program focused on finding and commercializing agricultural technology that can help smallholder farmers. We're working to build public-private partnerships that move agricultural technologies from labs to markets to farms.
There is a significant amount of research and development that already exists with the potential to make agriculture more productive, more efficient, and more cost-effective. However, much of this technology has not reached markets in developing countries because of the risk associated with investing in emerging markets. Partnering for Innovation serves as a bridge between R&D and the private sector - forming robust partnerships that bring new technologies to the market, changing the way smallholder farmers do business.
