The Agricultural Science and Technology Indicators Initiative

Informing Policymakers for Correct Allocation of Research and Development Funding

The Agricultural Science and Technology Indicators (ASTI) initiative is the most comprehensive source of data and information on agricultural research and development (R&D) and related capacity and investments in developing countries. ASTI compiles, analyzes, and publicizes primary agricultural R&D data in low- and middle-income countries. The initiative publishes country-level briefs and regional and global reports on capacity trends in agricultural research to raise awareness of ongoing challenges and guide policymakers toward informed decisions on funding and allocation policies.
