The Senior Regional Adviser was requested to serve as a Resource Person at the Symposium to present a Lead Paper on the prospects for intensive resource based agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa and analyze the policies to be undertaken by African governments to support such a strategy. The Senior Regional Adviser was also requested to chair a Plenary Session of the Symposium and to serve as the Leader/Facilitator of number of the technical Working Group sessions. In response to these requests, the Senior Regional Adviser undertook a mission to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso from August 19 to 25, 1996.
