Providing regional agricultural support

This strategy features in the framework of Agenda 21 as formulated at UNCED (Rio de Janeiro, 1992), now coordinated by the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development and implemented through national and local authorities.

In 1993, the International Centre for Research in Agroforestry (Nairobi, Kenya) hosted the first meeting between 17 centre directors of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research and the directors of national agricultural research systems in Africa (50 persons from 32 countries). The 2-day meeting increased understanding of common goals and developed an agenda for collaboration.

Governments at the appropriate level, with the support of the relevant international and regional organizations, should introduce management strategies and mechanisms, such as accounting and audit services for rural people's organizations and institutions for human resource development.
