Summary/Abstract: Social learning and innovation goes hand in hand in rural development, yet they occur at different systemic levels, e.g. the national level, regional level, local level etc. These systems of social learning have become separated over the years (decades), however – so they now operate separately. Cooperation between different levels of social learning is crucial for successful developmental policy, though. Two case studies show the importance of cooperation between systemic levels of social learning; and these case studies also show the key role to be played by the “change agent” within rural development.
