Unleashing science, technology and innovation for food and nutrition security: Developing a road map
The 2014 CTA international forum on “Unleashing Science, Technology and Innovation for Food and Nutrition Security: Developing a Road Map” brought together leading ACP and EU scholars, senior scientists/researchers/academicians, policy-makers, development practitioners, innovators, farmers and private sector representatives to deliberate on these interlinked issues which have national and global significance. The Forum covered four strategic issues: novel pathways for agricultural innovation; optimising resources (human and physical); the enabling policy and institutional environment; and the way forward. The final report (PDF) presents an integrated Road Map addresses critical gaps which were prioritized for the strategic areas considered relevant when going forward. The Road Map focuses on the means to upscale institutional change and to harness STI knowledge for business /social enterprises and entrepreneurs to exploit opportunities, enhance effectiveness and impact, and strengthen governance systems.
