The AGRF 2023 theme identifies three steps needed to achieve this transformation:

  • Recovery: calling for decisive strategies and actions to help the continent recover and rebuild its food systems following multiple crises and shocks;
  • Regenerate: calling for the need to regenerate the natural capital resources (soil, biodiversity and water), with the best adaptation practices, innovation and technology which are essential for sustainable food production under a changing climate;
  • Act: calling for urgent action to accelerate food systems transformation in the continent through better policies, practices and investments
To enrich and complement the Forum and to give its partners and other stakeholders an opportunity to highlight their work, the AGRF is inviting partners to submit proposals to convene side events during the Pre-Day in advance of the Summit: September 4, 2023.

The deadline for Submissions is Friday, June 15, 2023. Space is limited.
