The AGRF, Africa’s premier forum for driving the food and agriculture agenda in the continent, will host its 12th annual summit under the theme Grow. Nourish. Reward – Bold Actions for Resilient Food Systems from September 5-9, 2022 in Kigali, Rwanda.

The AGRF is now Africa’s Food Systems Forum

On Sep 6, 2022, The AGRF unveiled its new brand, AGRF, Africa’s Food Systems Forum. At the heart of the rebrand is a desire to evolve from an annual event to a platform of platforms. To move beyond conversations and engagements around the annual summit to engagements all year round. With less than 8 years to achieve the sustainable development goals set on food security and zero hunger.

The rebrand reflects the forum’s ambition to move forward the transformation of Africa’s food systems. The AGRF rebrand is a call to action for public and private sectors to mobilise the resources, actions, and commitments required to impact the 2030 agenda to enable Africa to feed itself. From Jan 2023, the acronym AGRF will be dropped, and the forum will remain Africa’s Food Systems Forum. Read the press statement on the rebrand.
