In 2011, Guinea-Bissau spent just 0.02 percent of its agricultural GDP on agricultural research—by far the lowest level in Africa (and the rest of the developing world).

INPA is the nation’s only agricultural R&D agency. Funding for its R&D programs is entirely dependent upon donors and is extremely limited, volatile, and in some years nonexistent. As a result, many of INPA’s research programs are unfunded.

The country falls well short of having a critical mass of qualified agricultural researchers. In 2011, INPA employed just nine researchers with degree qualifications and, of those, none held PhD or MSc degrees, and none were female.
