The “Maximising Impact of Agricultural Research In Africa: A Workshop on Research Communication” being organised by IFPRI, WBI, GDN and ICT-KM (KSinR Project) is set to take place October 21st and 22nd in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Robert Zoellick of the World Bank recently proposed that funding for the Consultative Group for International Agricultural Research should double in the next five years. However, research by itself does not necessarily lead to change either in the field or at the policy level. How can this link be strengthened?

This workshop will explore in detail how research institutes working in agriculture can maximize the impact of their work through enhanced communications, effective partnerships, and useful knowledge management strategies and initiatives.
