The Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) is the apex organization for agricultural research for development in Africa. The Forum encompasses all stakeholders, African and non-African, who are committed to enabling African agricultural development and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially SDG 2 on "End Hunger, Achieve Food Security and Improved Nutrition and Promote Sustainable Agriculture." The current FARA strategic focus is on “Making Science and Innovation Work for Agriculture in Africa” and intends to re-assert FARA's position as a knowledge institution that contributes to raising the productivity, competitiveness and integration of African agriculture. This includes advancing the implementation of the Science Agenda for Agriculture in Africa (S3A) at country level. The S3A is the implementation framework for the Science, Technology and Innovation dimension of the post-Malabo CAADP Roadmap and Strategy and the agriculture and food security dimension of the Science, Technology and Innovation Strategy for Africa (STISA-2024).

    FARA is excited to be associated with TAPipedia as it reverberates well with the current knowledge management functions undertaken by the Secretariat, viz.: Infopedia, eRAILS, and eCapacities.
