The Agriculture for Food Security 2030 (AgriFoSe2030) programme funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) will conduct a training course for African young researchers on effective research-to-policy communication for agricultural development. The course is a collaboration between AgriFoSe2030 and The Gothenburg Center for Environment and Sustainability (GMV) at University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology.

The objectives of the short training course are to:

  1. Enhance understanding of the policy landscape, research policy linkages and different models for policy engagement and knowledge exchange;
  2. Equip young researchers with hands-on tools and skills for effective research-to-policy communication;
  3. Share experiences and lessons on best practices in communicating research outputs;
  4. Strengthen national networks for policy influence in African agriculture.

Participants will be trained in mapping the policy landscape and stakeholders, different models and strategies for policy engagement, formulating a research-to-policy plan and policy briefs and presenting policy recommendations aimed at the desired target group.
