FARA Secretariat hosts AHC-STAFF Methodology Validation Workshop

26th May, 2015
The European Union, currently one of the largest benefactors to Africa's agricultural development efforts, has partnered with FARA in a three year-initiative dubbed the ''Africa Human Capital in Science, Technology & Agripreneurship for Food Security Framework (AHC-STAFF).'' The AHC-STAFF, funded to the tune of nearly Euros 4 million, seeks to develop country-based and regional investment frameworks to guide domestic and/or development partner support to demand-led and forecasted human capital formation in agriculture.

Science Agenda for Agriculture in Africa

The Science Agenda for Agriculture in Africa (dubbed 'Science Agenda' / S3A) is an African Owned and African-led process that articulates the science, technology,extension, innovations, policy and social learning that Africa needs to apply in order to meet its agricultural and overall development goals. The strategic thrusts of the S3A in the short to medium term are: the implementation of CAADP; increase domestic public and private sector investment; creating the enabling environment for sustainable application of science for agriculture; and to double current level of Agricultural Total Factor Productivity (ATFP) by 2025 through application of science for agriculture.

IAR4D

The Integrated Agricultural Research for Development (IAR4D) concept was developed and proposed by FARA to overcome the shortcomings of the linear approaches for implementing agricultural research and development. The IAR4D concept appraises agriculture as a system that is made of many sub-systems that must work together to foster development. Thus it engages all actors, organizations and institutions that are involved in the agricultural sector to interact and jointly foster the development of the sector. IAR4D uses both the system and the commodity approach, and engages all actors along the commodity value chain, including external actors like policy makers, financial institutions, meteorologist, insurance etc. that influences the chain to interact and proffer solution to the jointly identified constraints on the platform.
