Africa Foresight Academy

What We Do

The Africa Foresight Academy (AFA) is  a network of  foresight practitioners  at continental, sub regional and country levels. AFA contributes to strengthening of capacity for  foresight  among professionals  in African AR4D institutions and private sector through: i) sensitization ii) developing competencies in conducting foresight and interpretation of foresight results iii) offering technical assistance to enable regional and national organizations to participate in foresight initiatives and apply results from past /ongoing foresight

The Academy

This virtual version of the  Academy is hosted by the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) as a continental infrastructure for  strengthening the  institutional arrangements and the promotion of foresight activities on the continent in partnership with the Global Forum for Agricultural Research (GFAR). FARA’s approach to foresight seeks to foster a proactive attitude for communities faced with changes by unveiling uncertainties and using them as a means for action.  The basis of foresight in agriculture in Africa is to facilitate forward thinking capacity on how innovation and knowledge can best help surmount the diverse challenges facing agriculture, to ensure that  agricultural research and innovation are more responsive to future agri-food system and related development need.
