A crucial aspect for building capacity is to satisfy the need of training the next generation of scientists. There is also a need to link research to development and to policy. USAID has seven focus areas under the new Feed the Future Food Security Innovation Center to contribute to these needs.
This presentation is based on AMA Innovation Lab projects for the Collaborative Research Council Meeting. This meeting provided an opportunity for USAID staff members and mission staff from USAID/Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, and Mozambique to join their agricultural research and development partners to discuss existing programs and future directions for advancing efforts along the research to development continuum.
This presentation was presented by Elizabeth Mitcham from University of California Davis and took place in Morogoro, Tanzania.
