International Assessment of Agricultural Science and Technology for Development (IAASTD)


International Assessment of Agricultural Science and Technology for Development (IAASTD) The International Assessment of Agricultural Science and Technology for Development (IAASTD) is a unique international effort that will evaluate the relevance, quality and effectiveness of agricultural knowledge, science, and technology (AKST); and effectiveness of public and private sector policies as well as institutional arrangements in relation to AKST.

"How can we reduce hunger and poverty, improve rural livelihoods, and facilitate equitable, environmentally, socially and economically sustainable developmentthrough the generation, access to, and use of agricultural knowledge, science and technology?"

The IAASTD is a three-year collaborative effort (2005 - 2007) that will assess AKST in relation to meeting development and sustainability goals of:
  • Reducing hunger and poverty
  • Improving nutrition, health and rural livelihoods
  • Facilitating social and environmental sustainability
The project is a major global initiative, developed out of a consultative process involving 900 participants and 110 countries from all regions of the world. Learn more about the IAASTD and how it has come about.

The IAASTD was launched as an intergovernmental process, with a multi-stakeholder Bureau, under the co-sponsorship of the FAO, GEF, UNDP, UNEP, UNESCO, the World Bank and WHO. For more information on the governance structure of the IAASTD, click here.
