Policy Engagement

FAC researchers are contributing to the development of agriculture policy by drawing from the experience and knowledg

based on evidence and the real challenges of Africa’s agricultural sector.

Our engagement with policy processes in Africa includes:

  • Policymaker conferences and workshops
    • African Green Revolution
    • Fertiliser workshop
  • Commentary to policymakers
    • Dfid White Paper on development
    • GCARD consultations
  • CAADP engagement
    • Ethiopia compact signing
