SDG Zero Hunger: Driving agricultural transformation in Africa

0.png

A discussion and networking drinks brought to you in partnership with Dalberg GroupUhusiano CapitalDevex and The Africa Club at London Business School.

African agriculture remains a source of largely unrealized potential. Low productivity and fragmented markets can dissuade many potential businesses and investors from the African agricultural sector. However, there is growing political will to support agribusinesses and substantial opportunities to address the continent's food security challenges, while creating a thriving commercial sector.

This event will bring together project developers, commercial agribusiness players, a diverse range of investors, development actors and foundations.

The format will be a keynote address, followed by an engaging and interactive business pitch session from African agribusiness projects across East and West Africa, and a panel discussion with a broad set of actors.

Full list of speakers to be announced.
