The novel coronavirus pandemic has an immense impact on healthcare across the African continent. COVID-19 is also impacting economic livelihoods. The World Bank estimates that agricultural production in Africa could contract by 7%, directly impacting family incomes and their investment in education, health, and other necessities.

Many poor and marginalized communities across the developing world may now fear food insecurity and hunger as a greater or more immediate threat than the coronavirus.

Two upcoming agriculture technology conferences promise to bring together diverse, virtual global audiences, engaging experts and enthusiasts who want to build resilient, food secure communities. Please RSVP now to join their interactive experiences, technical discussions, and practical collaboration across the agritech community.

Please RSVP for Cultivate Africa

Cultivate-Africa is a free virtual conference hosted by the African Union Commission on November 17-18, 2020 to discuss the COVID-19 challenge to agriculture in the AU member states.

The Technology & Innovation track will investigate cutting edge ideas with innovators and executives debating the evolving landscape of technology-driven solutions and services in supply chain, finance, and marketplace in response to the pandemic.

The event expects to identify innovative approaches for consolidating regional and in-country partnerships to play visible and effective roles in the fight against effects of the pandemic on agriculture and food systems in Africa.
