Development in Africa
To face the challenges ahead of them, farmers, foresters, food and bio-based industries need new knowledge that can be implemented on the ground. How do we improve competitiveness in an increasingly challenging economic environment, while securing sustainable use of resources and eco-system services. These are questions to which research and innovation can contribute; How do we contribute to food security? How do we increase the quality of Agricultural outputs. How do we empower rural Africans to boost and diversify their economy?, How better can farmers handle post harvesting challenges.
The best researcher groups in this category will be empowered to implement their Ideas with support from the WIN-ARC partners.
