Different FRN "models"

This solution addresses the different forms that FRNs take in different contexts in all regions for people interested in how FRNs are developing

  • Seed network

Problem Description

As farmer research networks are developing, we are documenting, sharing, reflecting, and acting on ongoing learning about the process of implementing a FRN. In each case, the FRN has a slightly different make-up, including different actors in the network, different types of farmers, different processes, research topics, tools and communication approaches. This "solution" brings together information about these FRNs so we can all reflect on what is emerging and learn from it.
