Regional Consultation on the Rolling Out of Science Agenda for Agriculture in Africa (S3A) to Countries
The Science Agenda for Agriculture in Africa (S3A) outlines the guiding principles to help Africa take charge of the science to transform its agriculture. It refers to the science, technology, extension, innovations, policy and social learning Africa needs to apply to meet its evolving agricultural development goals. The S3A is based on the recognition of the game-changing potential of science for the continent’s agricultural transformation agenda encapsulated in the CAADP. The empirical evidence show that a deeper application of Science in Agriculture will improve productivity, food security, employment and resilient livelihoods.

Realisation of the Science Agenda’s vision depends on effective domestication of this framework agenda into national strategies, investment plans and action plans given the uniqueness of the contexts, challenges, opportunities and priorities of countries. To ensure that the S3A is owned and driven by countries, a series of engagements at Sub regional and National level are being organised by FARA that will help set up a controlled process for deepening national engagements with S3A implementation by countries.
