Planting India in Africa - Indian influence on African agricultural research and development

Shalini Bhutani


In the past five years, India's policies towards and its actions in Africa have seen significant increase and qualitative change. This paper is an attempt to capture the emerging picture of India-Africa collaboration, and in particular how it relates to agricultural research and development (R&D). Its main objective is to better understand what the changes are, who is behind them, and what they mean for agricultural R&D in Africa. The author views these developments through the lens of the Alliance for Democratising Agricultural Research in South Asia (ADARSA), and asks whether these changes support decentralised and bottom-up research.
