Agricultural knowledge and development in a new age and a different world

This paper examines developments and issues regarding agricultural knowledge systems, which affect agricultural development. It covers three purposes. The first is to review the evolution of four international agricultural knowledge frameworks, namely: (1) national agricultural research institutes (NARI); (2) national agricultural research systems (NARS); (3) agricultural knowledge and information system for rural development (AKIS/RD); and agricultural innovation system (AIS). The second is to examine various initiatives in Latin America with implications worldwide for advancing innovations for agricultural development. Finally, the paper outlines the main elements that tend to make some countries more innovative than others.
