Welcome FARA as a GRA Partner

We are pleased to welcome the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) as the newest Partner of the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases!

FARA’s vision is to foster the reduction of poverty in Africa through the development of sustainable broad-based agricultural growth and improved livelihoods, particularly for smallholder and pastoral enterprises.

FARA is responsible for coordinating and advocating agricultural research for development and brings together a number of Africa’s sub-regional agricultural research initiatives to respond to continent wide development frameworks. FARA also supports the African Union Commission (AUC) in the areas of agricultural science, technology and innovation.

FARA’s strategy for 2019-2028 prioritises the issue of climate change and the extension of Climate Smart Agriculture technologies. The partnership between the GRA and FARA will help advance these aims across Africa, including with FARA’s sub-regional organisations and help support the research priorities of African GRA countries.
