Looking for things to tryin PID
Sources of new ideas & knowledge
PID implies openness for multiple sources:
Research organizations: are we, our organizations, linked well
enough to benefit from this resource?
Other development organizations: do we exchange and share
enough?
Farmers,those we work with as well as others elsewhere: are
we alert for innovations from farmers?
The heart of PID is combining views, ideas, from different
sources;
Central issue is making the choice of what to work on, what to
try, transparent.

Start with looking at farmer
innovations?
Recognizingfarmers own efforts in innovation;
development changes the way farmer, extension and
research understand and respect each other;
Creates a positive momentum as it focuses on peoples
capacities and initiatives rather than their problems;
It thus builds a dynamic of self-confidence rather than
dependency on outsiders for bringing useful new ideas;
Innovations developed may fit more easily with local
realities;
At least give space to innovative ideas and suggestions in
activities proposedby us.
