8th Africa Agriculture Science Week
The 8th Africa Agricultural Science Week (AASW8) & FARA General Assembly will be hosted by the North Africa Agricultural Sub Regional Organization (NAASRO) and the Agricultural Research Centre (ARC) at the Egypt International Conference & Exhibition Centre, Cairo from October 28 – 31, 2019.
The Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) and constituent partners are leading the development and operationalization of the Science Agenda for Agriculture in Africa. The Science Agenda for Agriculture in Africa (dubbed ‘Science Agenda’ / S3A) is an African-owned and African-led process that articulates the science, technology, extension, innovations, policy and social learning that Africa needs to apply in order to meet its agricultural and overall development goals.
The AASW is FARA’s flagship event which is held every three years and is hosted on a rotation basis by member regions of the organization. It is the main platform for mainstream Agricultural Research and Development stakeholders to come together and exchange information, network, do advocacy and make commitments about the future with strategic direction.
