IFPRI Strengthens Partnership with FARA

To formalize two of its strong partnerships, IFPRI recently signed Memorandums of Understanding with the African Union Commission (AUC) and the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA).

IFPRI’s continued collaboration with FARA, which is led by World Food Prize Laureate and executive director Monty Jones, seeks to spur agricultural growth and overall economic performance through agricultural research that generates innovative ways to improve crop production, and technology dissemination and adoption. IFPRI will also support the design of agricultural and nutrition strategies and improve capacity for policy research and analysis.
"FARA is pleased to collaborate with IFPRI to foster synergies between
policy recommendations and priorities for technology development and capacity
building, and to promote evidence-based policymaking," said Dr. Jones.
