Agri-Logistics East Africa Summit

Event posted by in AgriProFocus Rwanda
  28 February 2017 to 01 March 2017 - All Day Event
  Hillton Hotel, Nairobi - Kenya

Growing trade volumes in the east African region provides both opportunities and challenges. A major obstacle to efficient trade facing the region’s agricultural sector is the transportation stage of the supply chain such as poor infrastructure (roads, bridges, etc.), lack of appropriate transport systems, and a lack of refrigerated transport and storage.

It is against this background that the African Agri Council presents the Agri Logistics East Africa Summit. The event will provide key insights into emerging trends, confront the most pressing issues, discover solutions, explore technologies and debate a roadmap for improving and expediting the moving of goods in and out of the region.

It is the only platform of its kind for the transport and logistics industry with the aim of improving the supply chain process from farmer to market and improving post harvest losses.

Event posted by in AgriProFocus Rwanda
  28 February 2017 to 01 March 2017 - All Day Event
  Hilton Hotel, Nairobi - Kenya

With 60% of uncultivated arable land untapped in Africa, agriculture is earmarked as an economic engine for the continent. Growing trade volumes in the East African region provides both opportunities and challenges.

A major obstacle facing the region’s agri sector is the use of innovative ways to utilise technology for improved production and increased productivity. E-agriculture offers a wide range of solutions to agricultural challenges and has great potential in promoting sustainability in the region.

It is against this background that the African Agri Council presents e-Agri East Africa Summit taking place 28 Feb – 1 March in Nairobi, Kenya. This is Africa’s only platform of its kind that brings together proven innovative e-agriculture solutions for preventing post-harvest losses, improved production and increased productivity to improve the supply chain process from farmer to market and to enhance food security in the region.

IFC and agribusiness in a changing environment

IFC event on GAFSP and climate smart agriculture, The Hague, Netherlands – 28 October 2016

Young Africa Works

Event posted by in Youth in Agribusiness Rwanda
  16 February 2017 to 17 February 2017 - All Day Event
  Kigali, Rwanda

On February 16 and 17, 2017, The MasterCard Foundation is hosting its second annual Young Africa Works Summit in Kigali, Rwanda. This invite-only event will bring together a community of 300 thought leaders from NGOs, government, funders and the private sector committed to developing sustainable youth employment strategies in Africa. It will also directly involve young people to help understand and explore their journeys, including the challenges they face, in securing meaningful economic opportunities.

Building on the dynamic conversations of the inaugural Summit in 2015, we believe that there is more to explore around youth, employment and agriculture. In 2017, we would like to shift the discussion from how to engage youth in agriculture, to youth as drivers of agricultural transformation. This transformation holds tremendous promise for catalyzing prosperity and creating sustainable livelihoods for young people in Africa. The Summit will also explore three sub-themes that contribute

SEEP webinar: Beyond Production: Innovation and Opportunity for Women's Economic Empowerment in Agricultural Market Systems

Women living in poverty occupy a large and growing role in agricultural production in developing countries, leading many development practitioners to focus interventions targeting women on production-related activities where scale can more easily be achieved. However, with the spread of the market systems development approach, practitioners are identifying innovative ways to address market constraints and catalyze women’s economic empowerment through new entry points. Examples include interventions that promote roles for women as traders and intermediaries, as key providers of extension or veterinary services, or in marketing and retail sales.

This webinar follows the recent publication of a BRIEF supported by the Leveraging Economic Opportunities (LEO) project, which seeks to enhance USAID programs, projects, and activities focused on creating inclusive marke

Joseph Sekiku From Kagera Region,  send you my wishes for a prosperous year 2017! The ending year 2016, has been challenging for us in Kagera, because for the first time in decades, the region has succumbed to extreme food shortage, making several households  live by handouts provided as relief foods imported from other regions of Tanzania!! To me this was a shame......... and a sign of failure on my part as an agricultural expert, NOT being able to help this region, NOT AND NEVER TO SUCCUMB TO SUCH shameful FOOD SHORTAGE. Remeber Kagera region is one of the most endowed region in Tanzania with good soils, conducive climate.. but investment in agricultural production is at its LOWEST. Would agro-profocus TEAM UP with the few of us members in the Kagera Region, to create and restore the difference?  Expand the Arusha office please..

The State of Food and Agriculture 2016 (SOFA):
Climate change, agriculture and food security

The 2016 SOFA report presents evidence on today and tomorrow’s impact of climate change on agriculture and food systems. The report assesses the options to make agriculture and food systems resilient to climate change impacts, while minimizing environmental impacts. It shows that making agriculture and food systems sustainable is both economically and technically feasible. However barriers to the adoption of appropriate technologies and management practices will have to be lowered, especially for smallholder farmers and women farmers amongst them. Likewise, an overhaul is needed of agricultural and food policies to shift incentives in favour of investments, worldwide, in sustainable technologies and practices.

You can download the report here. 

This report is published by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FOA). You can visit FOA's website for more information and othe
