Notes
  • Purpose – To illustrate problems a developing country faces in generating and managing agricultural R&​D funds and to portray some practical solutions to these problems. Design/​methodology/​approach – A case study of cocoa and coconut R&​D in Papua New Guinea is used to illustrate the problems and solutions associated with funding and managing agricultural R&​D in a developing country context. Findings – Several problems associated with donor funding, unreliability of funding and corruption are outlined. Solutions to these problems include fund diversification, commercial activity by the R&​D provider to generate their own source of R&​D funds, changes to national legislation to provide greater security of national funding for agricultural R&​D and introduction of some performance-based incentives for scientists. Research limitations/​implications – Being a case study limits the ease of generalizing its findings. Practical implications – The issues of generating R&​D funds and their governance are widespread problems in developing countries. This study shows some practical solutions to these problems. Originality/​value – This paper offers some practical solutions and insights about improved management of agricultural R&​D funds in a developing country. Its findings have possible relevance for many other developing countries.
