The official launch
Sep 8 all-day

Today, across Africa, big things are happening on the millions of small family farms that are Africa’s main source of food, employment, and income. Over the last decade, we have laid the foundations for a renaissance in Africa’s agriculture, one powered by the enormous progress increasingly evident in farmers who are gaining more options in the seeds they plant, in the fertilizers they use, and in the markets available to purchase their produce. So far, it’s just a glimpse of success. But it offers an inspiring new vision of a future Africa in which farming as a struggle to survive gives way to farming as a business that thrives. This future can be our reality if all of us—farmers, businesses, governments, donors and civil society organizations—are willing to act now and seize the moment, because the time is ripe for African agriculture.
