Program of Accompanying Research for Agricultural Innovation (PARI)
The Program of Accompanying Research for Agricultural Innovation (PARI) brings together partners from Africa, India and Germany to contribute to sustainable agricultural development, food systems transformation, and food and nutrition security in Africa and India. The program is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) as part of the 'One World - No Hunger' initiative. Specifically, PARI research seeks to
- analyze the potential and impact of innovations (which innovations to invest in, where and for whom – considering women, youth, small-scale producers),
- identify and assess supportive measures to strengthen framework- and policy conditions for the generation and dissemination of promising innovations in food systems and rural areas, and
- engage with food, nutrition, agriculture and rural areas policy makers to inform reforms and investment decisions that can improve job creation and food and nutrition security.
