Ghana will host the 2019 African Green Revolution Forum(AGRF) here in Accra from 3rd to 6th September 2019 on the theme “Grow Digital: Leveraging Digital Transformation for Sustainable Food Systems in Africa”.
The forum will be attended by over 2000 participants including Heads of State, Ministers and Eminent personalities from all over the world.
Country Head for AGRA Forester Boateng who disclosed this at a briefing in Accra said “the hosting of AGRF is very important to Ghana because of who and how the idea was birth. The founding Chairman of AGRF is our own son and former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan of blessed memory. It was Kofi Annan who insisted and brought AGRF to Africa. Ghana was the first country to host the Forum and 9years later Ghana becomes the first country to host again”.
The AGRF is considered the world’s most important and impactful forum for African agriculture, pulling together stakeholders in the agricultural landscape to take practical actions and share lessons that will move African agriculture forward. It is a unique multi-disciplinary forum where delegates discuss and commit to programs, investments, and policies that can counter the major challenges affecting the agriculture sector on the continent.
