ERAILS

The eRAILS system was developed within the framework of the Promotion of Science and Technology for Agricultural Development in Africa (PSTAD) project. PSTAD is a project initiated and coordinated by FARA, managed by the Sub-regional Organizations (SROs) and implemented by the National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) in 34 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.

It is a continental African online platform for agricultural knowledge, information and learning system with the purpose of improving the access, sharing of research results on technologies and good agricultural practices, avoiding duplication. The aim is to ensure that lessons learnt and best farming practices in one sub-region can be easily transferred to researchers and extension staff and thereafter disseminated and adopted by farmers in another sub-region. eRAILS is a decentralized and open online agricultural information and knowledge platform for and by Africans.
