Description
The African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) is a platform for global and African leaders to develop actionable plans that will move African agriculture forward. Established in 2010, the Forum has emerged as Africa’s premier platform that brings together a range of critical stakeholders in the African agriculture landscape to discuss and develop concrete plans for achieving the green revolution in Africa. The 2018 AGRF will take stock, evaluate actions, and learn from compelling evidence across the continent, presented by many of the most inspiring leaders turning agriculture into thriving enterprises. Farmers will demonstrate how the use of technology and better farming methods are able to transform entire communities and nations. Public sector thought leaders will share their experience in delivering policies and investments to advance jobs and food security and change the growth trajectory of whole nations. Private sector champions and agripreneurs will showcase their efforts in innovation and how they are opening up scalable and sustainable market opportunities in Africa’s evolving food systems. Nuffield scholars traveling in Africa as part of their scholarship, as well as those with business interests on the continent, are strongly encouraged to attend this innovative event.
