Finding the right partners and places to ask questions is paramount to understanding the drivers of agricultural transformation. To facilitate opportunities for researchers and partners to develop trust and scope early-stage evaluation questions, ATAI funds small Proposal Development grants. These support very preliminary, exploratory research activities, including researcher travel. With this Proposal Development grant, the researchers will investigate the feasibility of a future randomized evaluation to study an initiative to link smallholder farmers in Kenya to export markets for Avocado and Macadamia.
