A joint venture between InSTePP and the University of Pretoria’s Department of Agricultural Economics, Extension and Rural Development
Agricultural management and public policy decisions require access to reliable and well documented sub-national production data for sub-Saharan Africa. Unfortunately such data are scarce and the historical data that does exist has often not been digitized and is difficult to obtain.
Mindful of this dearth of historical data on agricultural inputs, outputs, and technology use, InSTePP joined forces with the University of Pretoria’s Department of Agricultural Economics, Extension and Rural Development to launch the African Agricultural Data Rescue Initiative (AADRI). With financial support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation by way of the HarvestChoice project, the University of Minnesota, the University of Pretoria, and Agricultural Research Council of South Africa, assistance from the Statistical Division of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and in collaboration with agricultural statistical agencies throughout the region, AADRI was initiated in 2007.
AADRI’s mission is to discover, retrieve, scan and make available online past agricultural censuses and reports throughout the region. The initiative also develops summary representations of these data and draws on these data to undertake a range of policy-related analyses, often in an explicitly geo-referenced framework.
