Africa's food and agro industry is primed for growth. With ongoing global agro commodity disruptions caused by disease pandemic, wars, inflation, etc, there is urgent need for these actions to deliver socio-economic growth and enrich food systems across Africa:
Action 1: Need for long-term design and transformation of Africa's agrifood system. This is to be done by
- enabling African smallholder farmers have access to timely inputs, technology, training, and efficient markets
- unlocking smart blended financing instruments to agro commodity intermediaries such as processors and traders
- Enhanced farm-to-fork agrifood transformation among smallholder food producers to enable transparent commodity sourcing, adherence to appropriate labour laws, and better farming income.
