    The HASTEN project aims to generate transformational changes in people, processes and markets by strengthening capacities for sustainable agrifood systems transformation across Africa, through the development of new skills to cope with complex, multilevel, multi-sectoral and multistakeholder governance, SDG integration and cross-cutting themes such as inclusion, gender, youth and environmental sustainability. The project is co-led by the FAO Office of Sustainable Development Goals (OSG), FAO Regional Office for Africa (RAF), Subregional Office for Eastern Africa (SFE) and the Subregional Office for West Africa (SFW), and will be implemented in close collaboration with FAO Country Offices in Lesotho, Rwanda and Sierra Leone.This inception meeting intends to set the groundwork for the HASTEN project, consolidating its workplan, accountability mechanisms and effective engagement of potential national stakeholders. A key tool to be discussed and validated during the meeting is a questionnaire designed to map core capacity andeducational gaps necessary for SDG-based agrifood systems transformation and education in the three implementation countries: Rwanda, Lesotho, and Sierra Leone.

    The research function is crucial for developing, testing, and adapting novel solutions for transforming agri-food systems in the region. Yet a study conducted on Malawi’s Agricultural Innovation System (AIS) revealed that the key actors in the system lacked capacity to facilitate and or engage in the research function effectively. To address this constraint, a policy dialogue informed by multi-level and multi-stakeholder approach was facilitated to identify obstacles and propose practical solutions. The Identified key obstacles to agricultural research in promoting innovation were: poor networking, insufficient skills to mobilize resources, absence of knowledge management and communication strategy, weak governance mechanisms, as well as use of an underdeveloped monitoring, evaluation and learning system. This brief includes policy recommendations to strengthen the research function within the AIS framework in Malawi.
