CARI actively supports the development of policies for the rice sector together with the John A. Kufuor Foundation

In order to improve the policy framework for rice sector development in the CARI countries the John A. Kufuor Foundation (JAK) supports private sector led advocacy platforms to prepare policy papers. The policy papers were developed with joint participation of relevant stakeholders of the private sector in the context of a comprehensive study. The study determined the most important policy requirements in the rice sector. As a result a total of 12 thematic papers were developed and shared with the relevant government agencies in the respective countries.
