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.

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.

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.
