Translating science into policy and practice

Last changed: 19 January 2023

Welcome to register to the course Translating science into policy and practice hosted by AgriFose2030 and Kyambogo University. 

Research and researchers have important roles to play in promoting agriculture for food security. To achieve food security we need to take into account all social, ecological and economic dimensions of smallholder agriculture, and – in the context of AgriFoSe2030’s specific areas of work – also the key challenges:

  1. Improving access to safe and nutritious food
  2. Enhancing agricultural productivity and maintaining ecosystem functions
  3. Science –based innovation and extension
  4. Supporting smallholder agriculture within transforming food systems.

Agricultural researchers can benefit from increased policy engagement and can contribute to improved planning, decision-making and investments on the ground by enhancing their research communication. Researchers can take more or less active roles in outreach work, dissemination of new findings and policy engagement. Their personal motivation, their institutional context, and networks constitute important factors for their outreach work.

Aim of the course: Strengthening individual skills and capacities, and national and regional networks, for enhanced policy engagement and science-based influence for sustainable development.

Target group: Researchers within the AgriFoSe2030 programme from Africa, and staff from Kyambogo University.

Last day for registration: 27 Jan, 2023.
