African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF)

Event posted by in AgriProFocus Zambia
  29 September 2015 to 02 October 2015 - All Day Event
  Lusaka

This year’s AGRF is themed: “Walking the Talk on Youth and Women: Bringing Inclusive Agricultural Markets to Life.” This is both timely and apt, as the continent seeks to make the prosperity inherent in agriculture-as-enterprise more inclusive for women and youth. This year’s theme was selected in through direct response to a call by young people and gender-based organizations who attended last year’s Forum to dedicate a forum to discuss strategies for overcoming challenges affecting them. 

The design of this year’s AGRF will facilitate greater engagements among leading thinkers and actors, and three key agricultural constituencies: women, youth and domestic private agribusiness. Collectively, the Forum hopes to come up with a blue print of creating viable agri-enterprises that will not only contribute to reversing the food import bill but will also grow Africa’s economies by double digits.

Participation is by invitation only. To receive an invitation, please contact:
