A virtual foresight Academy for Africa?

Ralph von Kaufmann (FARA) explains just after the parallel session "Thinking forward: better predicting and adressing future needs"on 30th of March at the GCARD conference in Montpellier, the proposal made by FARA about a virtual foresight Academy for Africa. "Without their own foresight capacity GFAR developing regions cannot properly assert their perspectives in discussions and consultations on international agricultural research in which they have the greatest vested interest".
