Abstract

It is believed that potentially the National Innovation System (NIS) model is a more comprehensive framework for the diffusion of innovation when compared to the integrated approach around cash crops, Training and Visits, and even to the more recently used approaches such as Farming Systems and Multi-Actor Platform. Qualitative approach is used to evaluate the diffusion of Capacity Development for Agriculture Innovation Systems (CDAIS) approach, implemented in Burkina Faso since 2015. The paper argues that, like the NIS approach, CDAIS approach will fail because of the competing interest of those involved in its implementation, independently from the technical quality of the model.
