SIMRA is gathering examples of Social Innovations in agriculture, forestry and rural development in MRAs in the target region. The database below describes in brief selected examples, showing the diversity of SIs and some of their key characteristics. The database will be updated regularly with new examples during the project. If you know about any SI that you think should be included in our database, please complete the questionnaire that you will find here and the SIMRA team will review it.

This database is work-in-progress and will be progressively updated
