The Food and Business Applied Research Fund (ARF) finances research-supported innovations that will improve food security and private sector development in 15 partner countries of Dutch development cooperation. In Africa, these are Benin, Burundi, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Sudan, and Uganda. ARF supports applied research projects that are driven by the knowledge demand of practitioner organizations from the partner countries. The projects should evolve by a concerted effort of practitioners and research and/or higher education organizations and should contribute to improving access to food for the most vulnerable people. Projects must show applicability of the newly developed or adjusted knowledge, insights, technologies, tools, products, services or policies.
