At a global level, CDAIS supports the development of a Common Framework on Capacity Development for Agricultural Innovation Systems and related activities in the context of the Tropical Agriculture Platform (TAP), a G20 initiative launched to facilitate capacity development in agricultural innovation in the tropics.
