Grow digital

CTA is a partner of African Green Revolution Forum, the most important global event focussing on the continent’s agricultural transformation.

In 2019, CTA’s Digitalisation of African Agriculture 2018-2019 Report will act as the key knowledge product for the event guiding this year’s theme: Grow Digital: Leveraging Digital Transformation to Drive Sustainable Food Systems in Africa.

Between 2-6 September, CTA will also lead a number of events including an opening plenary panel discussion and the Pitch AgriHack Competition which will award the most innovative youth agricultural start-ups.

We also welcome visitors to our stand.

The Digitalisation of African Agriculture Report, 2018-2019 - Executive summary

Agricultural transformation is a priority in the policy agenda of African governments in their quest to meet the challenges of food and nutrition insecurity, climate change, youth unemployment and overall economic growth. With the right policies, innovation and investment, the continent’s agriculture could be transformed into a powerhouse not only to feed a growing population but to create decent employment for millions of young people.
