Abstract

Des études récentes ont montré que la recherche agricole en Afrique peut avoir une rentabilité élevée, mais son impact dépend de l'adaptabilité des nouvelles technologies aux capacités et aux besoins changeants du secteur agricole et du reste de l'économie. Les politiques d'ajustement structurel (ex : la libéralisation des marchés et la dévaluation monétaire) et les changements politiques sont en train de transformer la demande de nouvelles technologies et l'environnement économique au sein duquel ces technologies doivent opérer. Le défi est de concevoir la recherche agricole comme un intrant stratégique qui encourage une croissance économique à base élargie, la transformation structurelle de l'économie et la sécurité alimentaire dans des économies africaines de plus de plus orientées vers la production pour la commercialisation mais qui restent encore fragiles.
