Foundation helps Africa exploit crop technology
In this article, Erik Stokstad reports on the creation later this year of a foundation that could help overcome this barrier: the African Agricultural Technology Foundation (AATF), an organisation that will act as a clearing-house and technology broker for African agriculture.
Based in Nairobi, and funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and the US Agency for International Development, the new foundation will help match companies with African researchers, negotiate intellectual property agreements and provide advice on regulation.
