Overview

The ASTI initiative compiles, processes, analyzes, and publicizes data on institutional developments, investments, and capacity in agricultural R&D at national, regional, and global levels. The initiative collects substantial original data focused on low- and middle-income countries, as well as maintaining access to relevant developed-country data for comparative purposes. The initiative is generally recognized as the authoritative source of information on the structure, financing, and capacity of agricultural R&D worldwide.

The initiative has established successful collaborations with numerous regional and subregional organizations in Africa as well as Asia, Middle East, and Latin America to facilitate the initiation of national surveys. Since 2001, ASTI has published a broad set of country briefs and regional synthesis reports, which have been cited widely in national and international agricultural research policy documents.
