Some selected issues raised Political contexts matter Beware simplistic assumptions about transfer: contexts matter, time and learning is important, whats appropriate depends on who its aimed at. Building long-term platforms: investment in training and expertise exchange is really significant. Linking state-backed aid with business is central. But questions about who benefits? Informal, networked, incremental investments outside state-directed processes may have big impacts in longer term. 18. Thank You! www.future-agricultures.org/research/cbaa henryt@ids.ac.uk
