Organised by the Alliance for Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), the AGRF is the world’s premier forum for advancing Africa’s agricultural agenda. At its 10th anniversary, the summit is expected to use its full weight, resources, and partnerships to energise political will and drive the actions required to overcome the major challenges affecting African agriculture.
In line with the theme, TAAT’s session seeks to provide insight on how African agriculture is being transformed through the African Development Bank’s Feed Africa Strategy with particular emphasis on proven technologies and innovative partnerships as vehicles of delivery. The session will explore, the strategic linkage between agricultural research and technology delivery. Participants will get an opportunity to hear about selected TAAT’s success stories and lessons learnt in feeding African cities through its Wheat Revolution, Intensification of Cassava Production and Commercialisation, and Building the Capacity of African Farmers through Technology Outreach.
