AGRODEP provides grants to cover gaps in research, to promote research innovations, and to facilitate research valorization. Annual competitive calls for research proposals are made for the grants for gaps in research and the grants for innovative research. AGRODEP members are eligible to apply for grants for research valorization year-round.

The AGRODEP Working Paper series aims to enhance the visibility of African researchers and experts as well as contribute to the policy dialogue in Africa. Manuscripts submissions are accepted year-round. AGRODEP members are also eligible to apply for awards for excellence in publications throughout the year.

AGRODEP is pleased to announce its seventh round of membership extension.  For this particular call, we strongly encourage applications from researchers who are engaged in or are strongly interested in learning more about trade policy analysis, value chain analysis, or agricultural transformation and investments. We also strongly encourage women and researchers from African countries which have low or zero representation in AGRODEP to apply. To be considered for membership, applicants must meet the following criteria:
  • Must be a citizen of an African country
  • Must be based in Africa
  • Must have obtained a Ph.D. within the last 15 years, currently be pursuing a Ph.D. degree, or possess a Master’s degree in combination with technical skills and experience.

Starting in 2016 and continuing into 2017, clinics have been organized by IFPRI's West and Central Africa Office to provide capacity building support for the appraisal of existing National Agricultural Investment Plans (NAIPs). The goal is to provide these expert African participants with the necessary tools to guide country officials in the design of new NAIPs.

AGRODEP’s new Affiliate Membership program aims to increase its members’ exposure to colleagues and experts outside of AGRODEP. By sharing data, economic models, and experiences with non-AGRODEP members, and by engaging with their peers outside of the Consortium, AGRODEP members will be better positioned to perform science-based research and to help address strategic development issues and relevant agricultural-related challenges through the formation of sound policies.
