SPEAKER PRESENTATIONS

MAJOR HIGHLIGHTS

  • Launch of the Africa Agriculture Status Report. Africa’s flagship and authoritative study on agriculture will focus on the business of smallholder farmers. It will specifically focus on strategies that will enable smallholder agriculture to become a business that is profitable and that generates employment as well as encouraging the youth to engage actively in the sector.

  • New business deals announced for African agriculture. We expect several announcements of new business contracts between the private sector, small and medium enterprises, and communities of smallholder farmers, especially in commodity value chains of interest to smallholder farmers, such as the regional rice value chain.
  • Announcement of the 2017 Africa Food Prize. The US $100,000 prize recognizes innovative individuals or institutions that are leading the effort to change the reality of farming in Africa from a struggle to survive to a business that thrives. It puts a bright spotlight on bold initiatives and technical innovations that can be replicated across the continent to create a new era of food security and economic opportunity for all Africans.
  • Media field visit. A field trip to an agricultural project by the Governmnet of Côte d’Ivoire’s to showcase unique stories of success will be organized. Limited places are available for media. If you are interested in the field trip, please tick the relevant box in the application form signaling availability. AGRF will cover associated expenses should a place on the trip be offered.
  • Launch of an Africa Nutrition report. The battle against malnutrition in Africa can be won. Over the last 15 years, several countries across Africa have dramatically reduced malnutrition. The report from the newly formed Malabo Montpellier Panel analyses the policy decisions and institutional changes that contributed to this achievement and distills lessons from past successes that can help Governments to redouble their efforts to meet ambitious targets.
  • CIAT Dialogue on Nutrition Resilience. By leveraging advances in artificial intelligence, scientists can generate real-time insights from interconnected data flows on nutrition and food security to help predict and prevent future nutrition emergencies. Join CIAT and its partners for an engaging dialogue on: “Enhancing Africa’s Nutrition Resilience through Artificial Intelligence”. Together we will review the potential of Nutrition Early Warning Systems (NEWS) to enhance resilience to nutrition crises. Please RSVP.
