Tropical Agriculture Platform (TAP)

The Tropical Agriculture Platform (TAP) is a G20 initiative to improve efficiency and effectiveness of capacity development programmes and of knowledge sharing in order to strengthen agricultural innovation systems in the tropics and sub-tropics.

To achieve these goals, TAP has embraced the Agricultural Innovation Systems perspective, acting as a multilateral dynamic facilitation mechanism that enables better coherence and greater impact of capacity development interventions for agricultural innovation.

TAP was officially launched at the first G20 Meeting of Agriculture Chief Scientists (MACS) in September 2012 in Mexico and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) was requested to lead its development.

TAP now comprises more than 40 global, regional and national partners representing agricultural research, education and extension, international development and funding agencies.
