Stakeholder surveys about agricultural innovation taken in four African countries were presented and discussed for further improvements regarding Private Sector Capacity Development.
The CCRS together with its partners from four African countries (Uganda, Zimbabwe, Marocco and Ghana) organized an online workshop of the project “Institutional Framework Conditions for the Promotion of Private Sector Capacity Development for Agricultural Innovation” (CD4AI). The workshop was held on December 1, 2022.
At the workshop we presented the findings of the stakeholders’ surveys on ‘Institutional Framework Conditions for the Promotion of Private Sector Capacity Development for Agricultural lnnovation’ carried out from April 2021 to October 2021 in Ghana, Uganda, Zambia, and Morocco in collaboration with Konfidants and local research partners in Ghana and Morocco. The research project was supported by Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) within the Global Programme Food Security.
The project revealed different perception patterns toward the role of the domestic public sector, agribusiness, and foreign aid initiatives in the provision of effective capacity development (CD) for agricultural innovation. The aim of the workshop was to discuss the findings obtained in collaboration with the stakeholders that participated in the surveys, and to consider further improvement steps toward enhancement of private sector capacity development and innovation in agriculture in these countries.
