One of the pillars of the New Partnership for African Development (NEPAD) framework is the systematic application of agricultural S&T to enhance African agricultural productivity and competitiveness. A comprehensive program to achieve this goal was developed by the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) and endorsed by NEPAD. As a contribution towards the implementation of the FARA program, the World Bank has formulated a Multi-Country Agricultural Productivity Program (MAPP) for Africa. The proposal has important implications for CGIAR, which is foreseen to contribute further to the enhancement of technology generation and transfer in Africa.
