CARI‘s New Vision and Mission: The Vision of CARI is “A commercially-oriented agricultural sector propelled by research, technology transfer, innovations, knowledge and approaches that will contribute to an improved quality of life for all Liberians” while its Mission is “ To contribute to increased productivity, commercialization and competitiveness of the agricultural sector through  adaptive research and promotion of knowledge, informationand technologies that respond to clients’ demands and opportunities towards the attainment of food security, poverty alleviation, income generation and job creation.”  

Taking into account the new vision and mission of CARI and the conceptual approach and the current research paradigm of IAR4D and in view of the above CARI is expected to deliver on its Vision and Mission through the following; (i) development and promotion of research, innovation and technologies for high value products and services; (ii) development of modern national information and communication technology infrastructure for sustainable development; (iii) development and strengthening of the technical capacity of CARI staff (iv) formulation of human resource development institutional policy that attract and retain professionals; (v) strengthening of systems for the creation, translation of data, knowledge and dissemination of information; and (vi) development and strengthening of strong research linkage with local, international research and training institutions for mutual benefit.  

This Strategic Plan has been developed in the context of the prevailing Government and donor policies that require a reorientation and positioning of the institute to effectively address the agricultural sector challenges and constraints facing the agricultural product value chains.  

The Government of Liberia through the Ministry of Agriculture is pleased to acknowledge the support and constructive participation and engagement off all of the development partners and stakeholders (Public/Private agencies/institutions, donors, development partners, legislators, technicians, farmers, civil society and NGOs/INGOs).  This level would not have been attained nor progress made were it not for the technical, financial and other support that you have provided and continue to provide from the relief, reconstruction and the development stages of Liberia‘s recovery. We wish to hasten to state that the real work now begins as it relates to implementation and operationalizing this CARI Strategic Plan that we have all worked to produce.  I wish to call on your resolve to harness our collective efforts and anchor our resolve to amplify advocacy for support of the legislative enactment and the financial and material resources needed to establish, maintain and sustain CARI.
