African Fertilizer and Agribusiness Partnership (AFAP) will be convening a hybrid physical and virtual East Africa-AFAP Regional Public-Private Dialogue.
The event to be held under the theme: ‘The Future of Fertilizer and Agro-inputs in Africa’ will be a response to the current challenges impacting global supply chains and has negative consequences on the African fertilizer and agro-inputs sectors.
Slated for April 2023 in Kampala, Uganda, the AFAP Regional PPD series aims to facilitate actionable and outcome-oriented discussions among regional stakeholders, leading to the development of concrete next steps for addressing Africa’s fertilizer and agro-inputs challenges
Support for the East Africa AFAP Regional PPD will be led by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Feed the Future (USAID), the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries of Uganda, and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA).
According to the organisers, the event will also provide an excellent opportunity for gathering input that will go into the 10-year industry strategy development during the African Union’s 2023 African Fertilizer and Soil Health Summit.
“We believe that this event series will be a valuable platform for stakeholders to exchange knowledge and develop solutions to address the fertilizer and agro-inputs challenges facing the continent.”
