Focussing on four regions aiming to make the voices of small scale producers and other excluded citizens heard — and count — in the governance and process of agricultural research".

It was initiated by a non-governmental organisation/charity and researchers, scientists & educators and encourages people to participate through research & learning. Democratising Agricultural Research is transnational in orientation and concerned with environment & sustainability; research, knowledge production & information access; and science governance.

It was launched in 2007 and is ongoing.
