TAAT @ AGRF2020: “Agricultural Technologies for Feeding Cities”

TAAT Clearing House specially invite interested participants to the high-level session on “Agricultural Technologies for Feeding Cities” at this year’s African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF). The session will be held on the 7th of September 2020 from 17h00 to 18h30 (EAT).

Organised by the Alliance for Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), the AGRF is the world’s premier forum for advancing Africa’s agricultural agenda. With the theme Feed the Cities, Grow the Continent: Leveraging Urban Food Markets to Achieve Sustainable Food Systems in Africa, the virtual summit, which is being co-hosted by the Government of Rwanda under the leadership of H.E. President Kagame and the AGRF Partners Group, aspires to rally action on rethinking African food systems to deliver resilient, better nourished, and more prosperous outcomes for all.

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 (AfDB) 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.
