To facilitate strategic foresighting and planning within the region, ReNAPRI generates national and regional agricultural outlooks, which provide a baseline scenario and future projections for a variety of commodity markets. Analysis include horizon scanning, which identifies the emerging ‘megatrends’ currently shaping Africa’s agri-food systems, and impact assessments of domestic policy on regional markets.
