As a member of “e-GFAR”, you will be able to participate in Forum debates, post news items and also submit reports, papers and other information regarding ARD on the open site.

Also remember not to miss out in taking advantage of GFAR’s extensive document repository, which features over 1,000 publications from GFAR and it’s Regional Fora dealing with important areas of focus such as both new and learned methods of research, innovation, regional research priorities and more.

GFAR through their electronic website and portal known as E-GFAR has been supporting the promotion of the KS project by adding information on and links to the project in various places on its website.

GFAR is a multi-stakeholder initiative that contributes to eradicating poverty, achieving food security, and conserving and managing natural resources. It enhances national capacities to generate, adapt and transfer knowledge. The CGIAR is a stakeholder in GFAR.

EGFAR is a key tool through which GFAR plays its facilitating role. EGFAR is the website of all ARD stakeholders and all are welcome and encouraged to visit us, subscribe to our information tools and contribute to keep the contents of this website updated.” [EGFAR-website]

In keeping with their mission to develop an electronic platform to which stakeholders can contribute to the content, GFAR has supported the CGIAR ICT-KM program’s Knowledge Sharing project in promoting itself through this valuable mechanism.
