A Roundtable on Africa’s Agricultural and Climate Futures

About a decade ago, optimistic forecasts said Africa’s farmers and agribusinesses could create a trillion-dollar food market by 2030 if they could gain access to more capital, electricity, better technology, increased government support and irrigated land to grow high-value foods. 

Seven years to 2030, as a result of policy actions, climate change, global crises, and population growth, Africa has become the most food-import-dependent region in the world; but it still has most of the world’s arable land, and a fortune that can be made on the farms.

This session will therefore seek to address the question – “How do we make Intra-Africa Agricultural Trade work and what are the available value addition opportunities in African agriculture?”
