This brochure presents the 'Promotion of Science and Technology for Agricultural Development (PSTAD) in the SADC region' project, which has been implemented by CCARDESA.
The project was supported by the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA), and implemented sub-regional organisations (SROs) and National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) in 34 African countries with funding from the African Development Bank. In the SADC sub region, PSTAD was being implemented in Angola, Malawi, Madagascar, Mozambique, Lesotho and Zambia.
The goal of the PSTAD project was to increase agricultural production and contribute to the achievement of food security and poverty reduction in Africa. Its main objective was to build the African agricultural research knowledge management capacity and support the dissemination and adoption of new and proven agricultural technologies.
