African Forum for Agricultural Advisory Services

A round table discussion between FARA (the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa) and AFAAS (African Forum for Agricultural Advisory Services) was held in FARA Secretariat, Accra, Ghana, on 10 and 11 January 2008.

The objectives of the meeting were to arrive at a consensus on (a) how FARA, AFAAS and other continental bodies that contribute to FAAP relate to each other, (b) what the contribution of AFAAS to FAAP should be, and appropriate institutional arrangements for this, and (c) currrent strategic orientation of AFAAS.

The FTC (Framework for Technical Cooperation), an instrument supporting the FAAP, funded this meeting, and offered ongoing support to AFAAS start-up through targeted activities and interventions that can facilitate the inception phase of AFAAS.
