FAC research has helped to reframe agendas and convene debate at an Africa-wide and international level, using empirical research to address stereotypes and myths about pastoralists, smallholder farmers, progress in science and technology, and gender. With over 1.8m downloads from its website since it was launched, demand for these insights has been continually high, with a significant proportion (27%) of users from within Africa itself.
