Restoring Agriculture to a Pride of Place – RAPP

The Foundation is supporting the development of a framework that will enhance the practice of integrated agriculture that employs rural energy and communication, the efficient use of water resources through irrigation practices, trade and competitiveness in regional and global markets, improve productivity through extension services that will deliver high yielding genetic material, synthesize research outcomes and propagate for adoption by farmers. The Foundation will seek to focus the attention of policy makers and practitioners on the imperatives of commodity value chain development to engender competitiveness, help in the identification of relationships and coordination mechanisms and assist in understanding how chain actors deal with powers and who governs or influences the chain. Additionally the Foundation works for the protection of the environment through conservation and promotion of climate change neutral practices.
