Initiated in 2010, the African Green Revolution Forum brings together African Heads of State, Ministers, farmers, private agribusiness firms, donors, financial institutions, NGOs, civil society, scientists, and other stakeholders to discuss and develop concrete investment plans for achieving the green revolution in Africa.

In a region is challenged by climate change, rapidly growing urban populations, and an urgent need for jobs, agriculture offers solutions, providing a clear path to food security and employment opportunities for all Africans. 

Through collective efforts across the agriculture sector there are innovations, institutions, programs, and policies that work. AGRF 2016 was a collective opportunity to highlight the best elements of Africa’s agriculture, the changes that are allowing farming families to lift themselves out of poverty by embracing farming as a business. This year the organisers invite participants to come ready to build on this progress – quickly, efficiently, and at the speed and scale required to secure Africa’s rise through an agricultural transformation.
