African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) - Pathways to Recovery and Resilient Food Systems
IFPRI is participating in the African Green Revolution Forum 2021 (AGRF).
The AGRF 2021 Summit is a deﬁning moment in highlighting and unlocking the political, policy, and ﬁnancial commitments and innovations the continent has made and that it continues to work towards achieving. It is about advancing the commitments made at the Malabo Heads of State Summit and working hard to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
This year’s AGRF Summit will explore the pathways and actions needed to accelerate this process and steer the continent towards food systems that deliver sufﬁcient and nutritious food; do not impact the environment negatively; and create sustainable, digniﬁed jobs, and shared prosperity for Africa.
