Abstract

Researches on sectoral systems of innovation have typically been focused on industrial sector and the framework, so far, has not been mobilized to analyze climate change adaptation in agriculture. This article, therefore, explores the roles of systems of innovation in driving options to adapt to climate change, which claims sectoral innovation performance depends on the performance of institutions and actors' interaction. The research is based on two case studies, i.e., coffee and dairy sectors that are different in terms of actors involved, and institutional setup. The results finds, in the coffee, actors system is highly centralized and the innovation system is dominantly on technology development. In contrary, many actors make-up the dairy sector and the innovation system is dominantly on institutional building. The capacity to innovate, therefore, depends on institutional element in addition to its technology development and the dairy sector in Kenya could be an example for the coffee.
