WCDI and the F&BKP

Wageningen UR Centre for Development Innovation (WCDI) is consortium partner in the secretariat of the F&BKP. The F&BKP Office team is staffed by employees from WCDI, The Broker and AgriProFocus, mostly on part-time basis. Added value of the Centre for the F&BKP is their ample experience in LMICs on a variety of themes and being a gateway to the overall know-how of Wageningen University & Research. Their work links Wageningen UR’s knowledge and expertise with processes of society-wide learning and innovation. By linking research and practice, they help to create new models of business, new forms of governance and policy, and new partnerships for change that balance the needs of people, planet and profit.
