Relevance of the Project
This CCRS -FARA - PCNS research project identifies the current challenges and opportunities of existing national AIS in selected African countries and investigates to what extent they enable or hamper successful public-private partnerships in domestic agriculture.
The project is in line with CAADP, the TAP needs assessment on capacity development (CD) for agricultural innovation and the demands expressed by African agricultural entrepreneurs on “Sustaining the Impact of Capacity Development Initiatives for African Youth in Agriculture” and advancing the recommendations of the UniBrain Agribusiness Incubation.
It is also in line with the new strategy on Swiss Development cooperation to make development cooperation more effective and in line with the OECD Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness, and to attract more Swiss investments in African agriculture.
