This document, delivered in the context of the SPIRIT Project, is targeted at Rwandan policy-makers and contains recommendations for the implementation of innovations along the potato value chain through modifications in existing policies, regulations and standards. 

Through the establishment of policies, policy-makers play a key role for fostering the adoption and even the generation of innovative technologies and practices by potato value chain actors. 

These policies, regulations and standards are continuously subject to review to prevent them from blocking the adoption of the new technological advances.
