Overview

The overarching purpose of this work is to conduct strategic analysis which will provide analysis to support SADC MAPP and its partners in revising, reviewing, and prioritizing the regional agricultural research strategy in Southern Africa and to build the region’s capacity in conducting its own analyses in the future. The more specific objectives are to: a) Use an economy-wide framework to provide strategic analyses of the priorities to determine the role of agricultural research in achieving overall economic growth and poverty reduction. b) Use a regional approach and economic models to analyze R&D investment priorities by discipline, commodity, zone, and country, considering the dynamic role of agriculture. c) Project through economic model simulations, the potential growth and poverty reduction impact on each priority area.
