The Forum for Agricultural research in Africa (FARA) is collaborating with it partners under the Programme of Accompanying Research for Agricultural Innovation (PARI) which is part of the One-World-No Hunger” (SEWOH) initiative of the German government, to create investment opportunities in the area of Post-harvest and Market-linkages for youth in Africa.
FARA is co-leading the study under the Investment Clusters of PARI, which is aimed at identifying investment opportunities and leveraging points for job creation focusing on post-
harvest of selected country priority commodities/crops. Based on available and projected data, the study will propose mechanisms to promote rural-urban market linkages to stimulate production and rural development on the continent.
Dr. Paul Boadu, Research Fellow (Innovation Systems) at FARA, is currently leading the study which is being conducted in seven African countries including Ghana, Nigeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Tunisia and Togo.
