    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.

    Agricultural research for development (AR4D), aims to improve the livelihoods of poor-resources and small-scale producers through adaptive applied, is critical for enabling poor-resource communities to improve their livelihoods. The National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) have a deep understanding of the challenges both at farm and system levels. However, NARS need the adequate technical and financial support to increase their efficiency to sustainably enhance the impacts of AR4D and achieve national food and nutrition security. Technical support, in the form of national guidelines, can provide NARS with essential tools to streamline their efforts on AR4D, increase their efficiency, and achieve better outcomes and impacts. Based on the lessons drawn from the assessment study on AR4D, including literature review analysis and participatory discussions with various NARS actors and stakeholders in Egypt, the following guidelines are proposed to strengthen the knowledge and skills of researchers and AR4D project managers. The guidelines also include recommendations and critical elements for successful implementation of AR4D that could be considered by NARS organizations and other stakeholders to help improve the performance of the NARS in Egypt. These guidelines could also be useful to enhance collaboration among the main research organizations of the NARS and improve the institutional linkages between different actors that ensures sustainable impact of AR4D in the country.
