The Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) is an apex organization bringing together and forming coalitions of major stakeholders in agricultural research for development (AR4D) in Africa. It is the technical arm of the African Union (AU) with the mandate of developing and coordinating Agricultural Research for Development in Africa. FARA was the lead institution for the implementation of Pillar IV of NEPAD’s Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP). FARA led the development of the Science Agenda for Agriculture in Africa (S3A), which was endorsed by the AU Heads of State and governments in June 2014. The S3A contributes to the priorities of Malabo Commitments as well as the Science Technology Initiative Strategy for Africa (STISA).
