Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the role of foreign aid, climate change and investment in R&D in the agricultural productivity of Guinea. For this purpose, this study assessed the impact of two dimensions of R&D investment (i.e. R&D expenditure and R&D researches), three dimensions of foreign aid (i.e. NDA, aid effectiveness, official aid received) and three dimensions of climate change (i.e. access to electricity, CO2 emission, renewable energy consumption) on the two dimensions of agricultural productivity i.e. Agriculture Value Addition (AVA) and crop production. The 30 years’ data was collected about the current variables for Guinea and the time series analysis was performed to check the relationships. The findings of the current study showed that R&D investment has a significant and negative impact on crop production but does not have a significant impact on AVA. Furthermore, the results showed that RDR has a significant positive impact on AVA, but it does not have significant impact on crop production. The impacts of ATC and REC on crop production as well as AVA are significant and positive. Furthermore, only one dimension of foreign aid (i.e. official aid received) showed a significant and positive impact on AVA however, there was no significant impact on crop production caused by any of the dimensions of foreign aid.
