Analysing the pathways to agricultural commercialisation in sub-Saharan Africa
Which pathways to agricultural commercialisation are the most effective in empowering women, reducing rural poverty and improving food and nutrition security in sub-Saharan Africa?
The Agricultural Policy Research in Africa (APRA) consortium is a five-year research programme that works to respond to these issues. Working across three work streams in six focal countries, APRA aims to generate new evidence on pathways to agricultural commercialisation.

The consortium will offer high-quality evidence and policy advice that makes a difference in crucial areas of central importance in sub-Saharan Africa.
