The International Institute for Environment and Development have now published their conclusions from the high-level policy dialogue between the Alliance for Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) and small scale famers on the priorities and governance of agricultural research for development in West Africa, which the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Agroecology helped facilitate in February 2012.
The report, published by IIED, covers the recent history and impact of citizens’ juries in the area of democratising agricultural research and covers the topics discussed, including priorities for plant breeding and seed selection, options for managing soil fertility, priorities for developing markets and policies needed to transform Africa’s agriculture.
