The Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) is currently embarking on a strategic shift into the next phase of its institutional evolution through an on-going rebranding and repositioning exercise aimed at strengthening its visibility, impact and delivery of its mandate. In this regard, FARA will be organizing a ‘Celebrating FARA’ event intended to recognize and appreciate the dedicated efforts of the Secretariat and its constituent forum members in strengthening African agricultural information, knowledge and innovation systems, and above all, in the recognition of Africa’s scientific achievers.
The celebrations will take place at the Birch Wood Hotel in Johannesburg, South Africa from 26th to 28th November 2014. To enhance this event, FARA is holding an essay competition for students of agriculture programmes in African tertiary institutions.
Topic: The Role of Agricultural Innovation in Creating Food Security in Africa
