The introductory chapter of this book suggested a framework identifying different components that are necessary for an IP to achieve desirable outcomes or impacts. This framework assumed that platform support functions related to facilitation, organization, documentation and research can foster purposeful interactions between multi-stakeholder processes and content matter (see Figure 10.1 reproduced from the Introduction). The hypothesis was that with these three components in place, IPs could achieve various outcomes and impact: balancing trade-offs within complex agricultural production, marketing and natural resources management systems, transposing the innovation process from one product to work on an array of multiple commodities, and reaching out to a large number of beneficiaries.
