Video Guest: Ousmane Badiane, IFPRI

Ousmane Badiane, IFPRI: Food security policy in Africa from CTA on Vimeo.


‘This is the first time that a large number of countries in Africa are growing and growing sustainable over a period of more than ten years […] whatever took place over the last 10-15 years to put Africa now among the leading fastest growing regions of the world- that needs to be understood and reinforced across the continent ’ (Ousmane Badiane, IFPRI).

I an exclusive interview with CTA Brussels, Ousmane Badiane, the director for Africa for the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) talks about the way research- based policy, developed in collaboration with local experts, can be used to enhance food security on the continent.

Topics:
- Developing research- based solutions against poverty and hunger in Africa
- Development of food security policy in Africa
- The comprehensive Africa agriculture development program (CAADP), and the activity of IFPRI in the region.

 

The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) is one of 15 centers supported by the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), an alliance of 64 governments, private foundations, and international and regional organizations.
The Institute’s aim is to develop research-Based Policy Solutions That Sustainably Reduce Poverty and End Hunger and Malnutrition. However, the research conducted by IFRPI is aimed not only for academic use, but destined to have an impact, and be integrated at the local level.
One of the major projects IFPRI conducted with NEPAD (an implementing agency of the African Union) was CAADP (the “Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme”)- an African led initiative, aimed at reaching economic growth through agriculture-led development ( an average annual growth rate of 6 percent in agriculture by 2015). CAADP was implemented in Burkina Faso, Niger, Ghana, Benin, and Tago.
