Prof. Moses Tenywa Director Agricultural Research Institute at the Makerere University - Uganda elaborates on the challenges of Integrated Agricultural Research for Development.
He says the SSA-CP workshop of 29th June - 3rd of July 2009 was timely. He explains why this new IARD approach is only now adopted in Africa. He recognizes the expectations towards the SSA-CP programme are very high. He does not see a contradiction between the need for researhers to publish and participating in multi stakeholder platforms.
