About CABI's Plantwise programme
Plantwise is an innovative global partnership programme, led by CABI, which aims to connect male and female farmers to the information they need enabling them to lose less, grow more and improve the quality of their crops. By collating knowledge and putting the right knowledge into the hands of the right people, Plantwise helps farmers gather data which can assist trade and policy making on a global scale.
Pilot activities have been scaled up in 14 countries, and expanded to new countries with the aim of reaching over 5 million farmers in up to 40 countries with relevant actionable advice on plant health by the end of 2016. Countries with the largest scale of investment over the next 3 years include Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Uganda.
The impact evaluation needs to measure the effect of Plantwise on capacity building, institutional change, farmer behaviour and agricultural productivity.
These were the guidance documents for preparing the application.
