CEAPRED has also accorded priority to Action/Policy Research in agriculture and environment. As its name implies, action/policy research on Agriculture and Environment has been one of the mandates of CEAPRED. CEAPRED’s past work in this area has generated considerable policy implications and feedback. It has worked with local communities and mobilized them to plan, prioritize and implement environmental action programs in their respective areas. The Center also engages in assessment and evaluation of various policies and programs as part of its regular activities in order to help design and develop new initiatives and projects for external support.
