Boosting Agricultural Research for Development

With EU support for the Food Security Thematic Programme (FSTP), the European Initiative on Agricultural Research for Development EIARD has recently released a second policy brief on Agricultural research for Development . Entitled "Capacity development for agricultural research for development (ARD)", the policy brief is based on a review of the policies, programmes and projects with the aim of strengthening the ARD capacity of fourteen European countries.
It recommends increasing support to capacity development for ARD, with a stronger focus on organizational and institutional strengthening as opposed to individual training, encouraging more multi-stakeholder initiatives and participatory methods, improving the planning, monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment of current capacity strengthening initiatives, and giving more attention to encouraging young people, especially women, to enter agriculture as a profession.
The first policy brief , that was published last November 2011, and focus on  "Making Agricultural Research for Development more pro-poor; improving the accessibility and relevance of ARD results to the poorest".
