The Agricultural Policy Research in Africa (APRA) consortium is a five-year research programme that works to respond which pathways to agricultural commercialisation are the most effective in empowering women, reducing rural poverty and improving food and nutrition security in sub-Saharan Africa. Working across three work streams in six focal countries, APRA aims to generate new evidence on pathways to agricultural commercialisation.

With headquarters at the Institute of Development Studies, APRA has run from 2016 to 2021 and is funded by the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID). The consortium will offer high-quality evidence and policy advice that makes a difference in crucial areas of central importance in sub-Saharan Africa.
