Closing Plenary: Towards a resilient, equitable and African-led food future

Digital Room 3

How can we transform food systems and develop green supply chains across Africa? This closing plenary will introduce the concept of innovative ecosystems, which are economic engines that scale innovations with high potential. They are fueled by collaboration and form support networks or enabling environments to elevate ideas, start-ups, and local organizations to their full potential. By working across sectors and geopolitical boundaries, Africa can combine modern innovation, science, local practices and traditional knowledge to attract the investment needed for a sustainable rural transformation.
