Arguments en faveur de l’augmentation des Investissements dans la recherche agricole en afrique

Submitted by astiadmin on Tue, 11/23/2021 - 08:50
Les investissements dans la recherche et le développement expérimental (R&D) agricoles sont positivement associés à des rendements élevés, mais ces rendements prennent du temps - souvent des décennies - pour se développer. Par conséquent, le décalage inhérent entre le début de la recherche et l'adoption de nouvelles technologies nécessite un financement soutenu et stable de la R&D. En 2016, l'Afrique n'a investi que 0,39 % de son Produit Intérieur Brut Agricole (PIBA) dans la R&D agricole, contre 0,54 % en 2000.

This report presents evidence that economies of scale and scope are critical drivers behind the performance of agricultural R&D systems in Africa, emphasizing the importance of R&D collaboration and coordination among countries. Small African countries generally record much lower returns to agricultural R&D compared to their larger counterparts, and their R&D efforts have been less effective in reducing poverty and malnutrition, two of CAADP’s main goals.

LE PROGRAMME DE PRODUCTIVITÉ AGRICOLE EN AFRIQUE DE L’OUEST

Le PPAAO est à l’origine d’importantes injections de fonds dans les SNRA ouest-africains depuis 2008 et a en outre enregistré des avancées remarquables quant au redressement des difficultés les plus criantes en matière de recherche agricole dans la sous-région. Le programme a réalisé d’importants investissements dans la construction et la réhabilitation des infrastructures de recherche, outre la fourniture d’équipements de laboratoire pour les produits agricoles prioritaires définis au préalable.

WAAPP has injected significant funding into West African NARSs since 2008 and made substantial progress in addressing the subregion’s most acute agricultural research challenges. The program has invested extensively in the construction and rehabilitation of research infrastructure and in the provision of laboratory equipment for predefined priority commodities. As such, it has strengthened the position of West African countries to perform high-quality, priority research over the coming years.

Female researchers offer different insights from their male counterparts, and their input provides an important perspective in addressing the unique and pressing challenges of female farmers. Consequently, it is important that agricultural research agencies employ a balance of male and female researchers. Statistics on sex-disaggregated capacity trends are needed to enable decision-makers to set priorities and benchmarks and to monitor progress.

West African countries will need to build on and enhance the largely positive performance of agriculture in recent years to moderate or perhaps reverse projected higher prices and growth in imports. The effects of increased demand and climate change will be felt as early as 2030, and with greater force in 2050.

Bilan détaillé des investissements et des ressources humaines affectées à la recherche agricole africaine

Submitted by astiadmin on Tue, 08/22/2017 - 07:40

En Afrique au sud du Sahara, c’est une exploitation intensifiée des terres (relativement abondantes) plutôt qu’un renforcement de l’efficacité technique qui a été la force motrice de la croissance agricole pendant les 50 dernières années. Cependant, l’accroissement démographique rapide et les effets néfastes du changement climatique pèsent toujours plus sur la disponibilité et la fertilité des terres en menaçant aussi l’accès à l'eau.
