(EUA): 1992Description: 61 p.Summary: Dynamic, productive and responsive agricultural research systems are critical if the rich potential of the SADDC region in Sub-Saharan Africa is to be more fully realized. The framework for Action in Agricultural Research, which has been developed by a small task force appointed by the SACARD and SPAAR Secretariats, identifies six principal elements of importance and makes recommendations on how these should be incorporated in the national agricultural research systems of SADcc. The framework concludes with a vision in the medium-term of increasingly dynamic and responsive NARSs with a clearer pattern of specialization among the different sectors (cash/export crops, intensive livestock and factor research by the private sector; staple foodcrops, extensive livestock and environmental and social concerns by the public sector, and basic and applied (under contract) research by the universities). Accelerated development of a stream of technologies for different sectors of the farming community should be possible provided that there is a coordinated effort by all the stakholdersSubject(s): INVESTIGACION | PLANIFICACION | ESTRUCTURA FUNCIONAL | ORGANIZACIONES INTERNACIONALES | POLITICA DE DESARROLLO | RECURSOS NATURALES | CIENCIA Y TECNOLOGIA | ESTRATEGIA DE LA INVESTIGACION | SISTEMAS DE INVESTIGACION | SISTEMAS NAC DE INVESTIGACION
