Who we are
GFAR is a unique global multi-stakeholder platform operating in the agricultural Research and Innovation (R&I) system and
driven by 900+ Members from 13 constituencies. GFAR is the apex global forum of the regional fora (as shown in the diagram
below), including thematic networks. This inclusive nature rooted in the regions brings to our dialogues and actions diverse
interests, capacities, and perspectives, but with one focus: agricultural R&I that recognizes small-scale producers as key global
actors and co-innovators.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR INVESTMENT
GFAR is pleased to present this Business Development Portfolio with the purpose of describing its programme priorities and inviting resource partners to participate, support and improve their investment in research and innovation to contribute achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Why invest in GFAR
The pace of soil degradation is high, and it is threatening the sustainability of agricultural production; 46% of the land area in Africa is currently affected. 485 million people (65%) people affected which translates to US$9.3 Billion in revenue lost every year.
