The workshop aimed at strengthening mechanisms for collaboration between producer organizations and agricultural research institutes, for a common purpose and a shared vision on the key aspects of agricultural research for development in Central Africa.
Specifically the objectives were:
- Establish mechanisms to promote the inclusion and involvement of FOs in the research process;
- Promote the uptake process and research results by FOs and their members for better extension;
- Create a formal framework for dialogue between research, PROPAC and the national farmer organisations;
- Identify areas and thematic priorities for collaboration.
