African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) 2019
September 3 - September 6
The African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) is a platform for global and African leaders to develop actionable plans that will move African agriculture forward.
The theme of the 2019 Forum will be “Grow Digital: Leveraging digital transformation to drive sustainable food systems in Africa.”
The digital era offers many new innovations and breakthroughs that will allow the African continent to get ahead of the curve, and more efficiently and sustainably unlock the full potential of its smallholder farmers and agribusiness sector. This is not simply a case of “out with the old, in with the new.” Progress will be greatest for those who learn to bring the two together. We must seize this moment to achieve our aspirations. With the right policies, programs, and investments, we can ensure that smallholder farmers prosper, that our women are empowered, that our youth enter and shape a vibrant agri-food economy, that our food systems become more sustainable and nutritious, and that we build a prosperous Africa.
