On 18 January 2024, a delegation from the West and Central African Council for Agricultural Research and Development (CORAF) was granted an audience at the Ministry of Scientific Research and Innovation.  The delegation consisted of the President of CORAF’s Board of Directors, accompanied by the Executive Director of the institution and the Director of Research and Innovation.

The delegation was received by the Secretary General of MINRESI in her capacity as representative of the Minister, Dr Madeleine TCHUINTE, who was unable to attend.  She was accompanied by the Inspector General of MINRESI, the Director General of IRAD and some of the Minister’s close collaborators.

The purpose of this courtesy visit was for CORAF to present the conclusions and prospects arising from the regional conference organized in Yaounde from 16 to 18 January 2024.  This conference is part of the process of revising the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) at ECCAS level.  CORAF, which covers 23 countries, is committed to supporting this process.  To this end, the organization intends to ensure that in the process of drafting the CAP, research and training are taken into account.  Headquartered in Dakar, Senegal, CORAF is also planning to set up a representative office in Central Africa.  Talks are already underway to this end.
