Posted on: 02/07/2020

14 July 2020 – 25 August 2020

Series of virtual missions brought to you by the GCRF AgriFood Africa Programme

The virtual missions are the next stage in the delivery of the GCRF AgriFood Africa programme. These missions continue the effort to build a community of stakeholders from numerous African countries and the UK, to realise sustainable management of the food production systems in Africa in a way that alleviates poverty, enhances economic prosperity and delivers improved well-being. These missions will highlight some of the challenges and trends within African AgriFood systems and provide members networking and collaboration opportunities. We will also be announcing the next round of funding calls, giving you updates on some of the activities happening across the network and time to connect with and present to other members.

You can read round-up reviews from the first three weeks here.

The next round of activities takes place over weeks 4, 5 and 6 and incorporates feedback from members of the programme. These weeks will focus on specifically targeted sessions to enable participants to achieve significant progress within this programme. Participants are encouraged to select sessions which most suit their areas of interest.

These sessions (weeks 4, 5 & 6) will inform you about:

  • New funding opportunities and guidelines
  • Collaboration and networking opportunities
  • Round table discussions from leading experts on specific African AgriFood areas, and opportunities to network with other delegates interested in these areas.
