Dear FARA Member,
The Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) is the Apex organization of the Africa Union (AU) responsible for coordinating and promoting Agricultural Research for Development (AR4D) for the Africa Continent. FARA for the past decade has been fulfilling this mandate by developing useful tools for use by various actors in AR4D. One of such tools is the Innovation Platform Agribusiness Portal (IPAbP).
The IPAbP is an online platform for Innovation Platforms (IPs) and Multi-Stakeholder groups to derive maximum exposure, business and opportunities in research for development. The IPAbP is a web information repository with the goal of aggregating information’s of all the Innovation Platforms in Africa to foster linkages with other agricultural innovation organizations, donor and development partners; foster access to information; Platforms to enhance collaboration and develop big businesses. It further provides the development partners, policy makers and agriculture stakeholders an avenue to directly source data on availability and veracity of all Innovation Platforms on the continent, through its analytics component. The IPAbP is a first of its kind and an innovation of FARA and ZEF.
We invite you to REGISTER your INNOVATION PLATFORM and/or MULTI-STAKEHOLDER Group and enjoy the benefits that come with it. I have attached the guide to enable you access the portal.
Please feel free to disseminate in your networks.
Your QUESTIONS, COMMENTS and ENQUIRIES are welcome.
