This pre-study on the “Status of Innovation in Nicaragua’s Agrifood Sector: Opportunities for Subsector Development” contributes to the existing information on agricultural innovation in Nicaragua. It thus aims to broaden the knowledge base for policymaking towards enhanced performance of the country’s agricultural innovation system. Adopting the perspective of the innovation system, the study analyzes agents involved in agricultural innovation activities, their interactions and the institutions and policies guiding their behavior. Innovation is understood as any novelty successfully introduced in productive processes of agriculture or in the processing of agrifood products.
