The Network of Organic Agriculture Researchers in Africa (NOARA) is established to unite and coordinate scientific and technical activities of researchers in the field of organic and ecological agriculture focusing on Africa. It was established by African organic research stakeholders in 2012, during the 2nd African Organic Conference at Lusaka, Zambia and re-organized by the African Organic Network (AfrONet) in 2019. NOARA is a membership Network that draws members from stakeholders within and outside Africa, focusing addressing food security and improvement in livelihoods of Africa through cutting-edge research outputs in organic and ecological agriculture. Its leadership structure consists of a team Board of Trustees and Governing Council with members from different regions of Africa and has over 375 members across twenty-seven countries within and outside Africa. Its Continental Secretariat is domiciled at the University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria.
The vision of NOARA is Africa with zero hunger, poverty eradicated, improved livelihoods and sustained ecosystem through innovative organic and ecological agriculture research. The mission of the network is to generate and disseminate sound evidence-based scientific organic agricultural knowledge that can ensure healthy, ecological, fairness and care of organic agriculture actors in Africa for sustainable livelihood and ecosystem, leading to food security, incomes and sustainable development.
