    Africa Food Security Conference

    THEME : CLOSING THE ‘PRODUCTIVITY GAP’

    Africa’s economic future depends on success in agriculture, which in turn depends on empowering famers (especially smallholder farmers (with less than two hectares) – who constitute about 80% of all farms) – to increase productivity by adopting modern farming methods. However, success in agriculture which in turn ensures food security can be a daunting task. There are myriad factors and interrelated parts that, in combination, make food security a complex challenge.
    This 2 day conference will kick start discussions addressing the needs of a dynamic food security program. Climate change, agri inputs, water scarcity, land rights, fairer agricultural policies, technological developments- all of these issues and more will be addressed as we seek ways to infinitely maximize the crop yields on existing resources in- face of ever-decreasing farm size due to land subdivision as Africa’s population grows. The Exhibition will run alongside the event and will show case latest technologies and other innovative products and solutions.

    Sustainability Summit

    Glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising and atmospheric greenhouse gases have reached an all-time high. Climate change is creating risks and challenges for nearly every industry, and following the public sector’s inadequate efforts to address them, the private sector must now take the lead in protecting the planet from further destruction.

    Firms need access to particular resources, so how can they come to set the standards for environmental protection? Building on these efforts, how can government leaders deliver on their promises of more sustainable practices through the creation of tighter regulations, new incentives and reforms? How can investors become equipped with the information they need to wisely allocate capital and manage risks, while still achieving a desirable return on investment? Finally, how can disruptive technologies push consumers and businesses to perceive sustainable development practices as a social responsibility and environmental imperative, but also a strategic business opportunity?

    Gathering leading critical thinkers, policymakers and business leaders, the Sustainability Summit will offer strategies, ideas and solutions that help decision makers capitalise on technology to prepare for the future.
