Brussels Briefing on 'Agricultural Transformation in Africa'

The last Brussels Development Briefing on the ‘Drivers of success for agricultural transformation in Africa‘ was held on 2nd of October, at the Borschette Congress Center in Brussels.
More than 120 participants discussed successes and shared lessons from the agricultural transformation in Africa, by emphasizing its impact on the livelihood of the people and its key role for the growth of the economies of the continent.
The event consisted of two different parts. The first provided an overview of the potential of agriculture in Africa as an engine for growth and sustainable development. It showed the positive trends and the needed drivers for sustained growth and inclusiveness. The second panel presented proven actions in African agriculture and best PPPs practices based on the successes of CAADP in the last 10 years. It highlighted successes which can be upscaled and/or replicated.
On the page of the last briefing you can find the programme of the event, a background research, the photos taken during the panels, video recording of the speeches, the presentations of the speakers, as well as other useful information.
This event marked the 33rd edition of the Brussels Development Briefings – a regular event organized in Brussels by the Technical Centre for Agriculture (CTA), together with the DG Development and Cooperation of the European Commission (EC/DEVCO), the ACP Secretariat and other partners – on key issues and challenges for rural development in the context of EU/ACP cooperation.
