Why partnerships

Partnerships is how we deliver on our mandate of accessing, adapting and delivering technologies to smallholder farmers for improved productivity.
We recognise that we cannot, on our own, accomplish the goal of technology transfer and we therefore seek the synergy and complementarity of other players along the agricultural food value chain.

Our partnerships bring together national, continental and international entities including farmers and farmer organisations; national and international research organisations; central and local governments; public and private extension service providers; NGOs and community based organisations; regional and sub-regional organisations; business enterprises; youth and women groups; and public and private investors.
We believe that meaningful, effective and efficient partnerships must be cultivated and nurtured for them to deliver intended results and we are therefore committed to building enduring relationships that will steer technologies through challenges to attain the end goal.
