Grow. Nourish. Reward – Bold Actions for Resilient Food Systems
The AGRF 2022 comes at a pivotal time, a crossroad in Africa’s recovery and progress towards the attainment of the commitments outlined in the Malabo Declaration, the CAADAP goals and the sustainable development goals.
The AGRF 2022 Summit will bring together a diverse range of speakers to showcase the actionable strategies and how pathways previously defined are translating at the country level. The AGRF programme is built on three key pillars: ambition, action and partnership. Attendees can come together during the plenary sessions at the start and close of each day and choose to join individual sessions tailored to their specific interests.
Rwanda has developed an extensive institutional framework that supports effective coordination between different stakeholders in the development and implementation of activities and interventions in its food systems. The government’s approach centers on encouraging private sector involvement in all activities along the food value chain.
Similarly, the government is encouraging Rwanda’s development to be green-led, to improve resilience and climate-sensitive and-smart approaches. This year the AGRF summit program will spotlight Rwanda’s leadership in agriculture with sessions designed to inspire and draw knowledge from the various initiatives, innovations, and programs that Rwanda has designed towards food security.
