AGRF 2020 Opening Ceremony; AGRA’s President Dr. Agnes Kalibata and Panel
More than one third of Africa’s population lives in urban areas, with this expected to double in the next 25 years. How can this growing demand for locally-grown agricultural produce be used to benefit the continent’s farmers, while creating jobs and enhancing food security? AGRA’s President Dr. Agnes Kalibata is joined by the Republic of Rwanda’s Prime Minister, the Right Hon. Édouard Ngirente, the Hon. Dr. Gérardine Mukeshimana, Rwanda’s Minister for Agriculture and Animal Resources, and His Excellency Hailemariam Dessalegn, the Former Prime Minister of Ethiopia and the current Chairman of the AGRF Partners Group.
