    Strengthening the agricultural innovation system (AIS) is a key step to accomplishing food systems transformation. Lack of policy cohesiveness and limited integration of policies and investment plans have constrained the pathway to achieve the SDGs. This side-event will present a framework that defines pathways to food systems transformation using integration at the policy, capacity and investment levels within AISs. It will also analyse the status of existing policies and financial mechanisms and investments, including lessons learned, experiences, and success factors for implementation of such frameworks in several countries. Based on the analysis, guidelines for a holistic approach to strengthen enabling environments through integrated policies and increasing investments for agricultural innovation at country and regional levels with be discussed and validated.

    As part of the efforts of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to support and strengthen NARS’ research impacts and their links to extension service systems, the present assessment was conducted in Liberia to establish deeper insight into these challenges and opportunities. The results presented in this comprehensive report can be used to support the development and adoption of guidelines for use by the NARS. The present study was undertaken to assess the implementation of AR4D in Liberia and the key actors involved to better understand the performance and the intuitional linkages amongst them and other relevant institutions to help identify potentials for fulfilling the agricultural research for development needs of the country with the over-arching goal of supporting small-scale farmers.
