Projects & Programmes

The project development process is managed by AATF in consultation with its partners. Once approved and funded, product development and deployment activities typically are managed by a Project Manager recruited by AATF or seconded by a partner institution. The Project Manager reports to AATF through the AATF Technical Operations and is under the supervision of a Project Steering Committee made up of stakeholder representatives. A host of experts in various disciplines relevant for project implementation, referred to as Technical Advisors, are selected to provide, on a voluntary basis, technical advice to the Project Manager.

Enabling Initiatives
Experience gained and lessons learned during indicate that the AATF core business goes beyond the traditional negotiation for access of technologies and delivery through available channels.  AATF recognises that driving projects through the full crop value chain and ensuring product uptake by farmers requires specific proactive action on some strategic elements that impact or may impact the eventual success of its activities. These elements – information and knowledge management, trends monitoring of intellectual property, biosafety regulations, seed regulations, R&D priorities in SSA and value chain management for delivery of agricultural technologies – are ingrained in AATF’s role of facilitator, catalyst and responsible party in technology access and delivery.
