This Programme aims to harness the role of science, technology and innovation as an engine of development. The programme recognizes the low technological innovation capabilities of productive sectors in Uganda and Africa and acknowledges limited use of evidence in decision making concerning technological advancements. Our research explores ways to promote processes that increase application of science, technology and innovation for Sustainable Development in the region and Africa as whole through:
- Increasing access and adoption of appropriate technologies in the agricultural sector;
- Increasing agricultural productivity and improved livelihoods, and
- Strengthening legal and policy framework governing application of sciennce, technology and innovation in the agricultural sector.
