PROIntensAfrica project has developed an innovative research and innovation (R&I) agenda. This agenda will connect pathway-orientated comparative R&I in relation to performance domains, dimensions of sustainability, scale levels, and conditions. The framework has three main implications:

  • The R&I agenda needs to work with a diversity of intensification pathways and provide keys to comparing the pathways.
  • Products from the implementation of the agenda need to address the main controversies regarding how to achieve sustainable intensification and food and nutrition security.
  • The potential of different pathways needs to be explored equally in relation to the range of different commodities and to the variety of geographic areas.

This policy brief is based on the project's final deliverable Outline for a long-term EU–Africa Research and Innovation Partnership
