AgriFood Africa Connect Map

The AgriFood Africa Connect Map makes it easier for UK and African organisations to collaborate on projects, provides information on the AgriFood sector across Africa, and helps connect innovators to enable collaboration and address key global challenges.

Showcasing the AgriFood innovation landscape in Africa

The AgriFood Africa Connect Map makes it easier for UK and African organisations to collaborate on projects, provides information on the Agriculture and Food (AgriFood) sector across Africa, and helps connect innovators to enable collaboration and address key global challenges.

Organisations on the map include research bodies, industry, government and NGOs that are involved in the AgriFood sector in the UK and Africa.

The AgriFood Africa Connect Map is part of AgriFood Africa Connect.

Why use the map? 

  • To visualise the African AgriFood sector as a whole and better understand it.
  • To make better connections and identify future partners for innovative projects.
  • To visualise information on the UK-Africa AgriFood funding ecosystem. Funded UK-Africa AgriFood projects are on the map, including details on partners and project locations.

What are the key features of the map? 

  • It allows you to search by country, organisation type or sector so you can easily find the connection you need.
  • Each organisation has key contact and communication channels linked on the map, so you can reach out and start a conversation easily.

The information on the map was collated by the Innovate UK KTN team based on the reach of AgriFood Africa Connect and UK funding for AgriFood in Africa. It will be updated by Innovate UK KTN and network members over time. It offers a reliable and up-to-date source of information on the UK-Africa AgriFood sector.
