Title

Since 2010, the annual Africa Food Systems Forum Summit has been convened on different themes and in different African regions, gathering Heads of State, ministers, business leaders, development partners, farmers, youth, women and more to work together to identify measures for action and policies for advancing the continental agenda on food system development. Throughout this period, theAfrica Food Systems Forum was consolidated as a pivotal platform for propelling the growth of Africa’s agricultural sector. .

2022 - Date
Title

At the end of 2022, the AGRF was rebranded as the Africa Food System Forum in alignment with our partnership's vision for comprehensive food system transformation. The Forum's focus now extends beyond the annual summit to promote discussion and action on pivotal decisions on food systems and food security year round.
