Online: Online Event
Host: Board for International Food and Agricultural Development (BIFAD)
Convening leaders from diverse stakeholders including BIFAD, USAID, AGRA, AfDB, World Bank, ReNAPRI, and the Alliance for African Partnership, this panel discussion will identify conditions and properties of resilient, sustainable food systems and propose policies and programs for African governments to achieve them. Considering varying conditions across Africa, expert private- and public-sector panelists will explore effective strategies for resilient, sustainable food systems and how these differ across countries, with consideration of fragile and resource-rich states. The discussion will draw from country case studies and recent evidence, including work commissioned by BIFAD, a World Bank publication, and an AfDB report, on linkages between agricultural productivity, economic transformation, and resilience.
