Description
The African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) is a platform for global and African leaders to develop actionable plans that will move African agriculture forward. Established in 2010, the Forum has emerged as Africa’s premier platform that brings together a range of critical stakeholders in the African agriculture landscape to discuss and develop concrete plans for achieving the green revolution in Africa.
The theme for the seventh “2017” AGRF is “Accelerating Africa’s Path to Prosperity: Growing Inclusive Economies and Jobs through Agriculture”. After Seizing the Moment at AGRF 2016 and securing political, policy, and financial commitments of more than US $30 billion, African leaders must move decisively to harness this surge of support for agriculture and ensure it creates jobs and drives economic growth across the continent—particularly for 300 million young Africans coming into the job market over the next 15 years.
