6th German-African Agribusiness Forum

Location:

6th German-African Agribusiness Forum

Event Overview

The 6th German-African Agribusiness Forum is being held in the course of the 85th International Green Week (IGW), under the patronage of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture.  

Benjamin K. Addom, Team Leader, ICT for Agriculture, is part of the working group on "Leveraging digital transformation in order to unlock Africa's agri-food potential". The working group covers the following topics:

  • What are some of the D4Ag models that bring together benefits for agribusinesses as well as smallholder farmers?
  • How can enterprises offer greater support in geographies that have historically attracted less investment but enjoying strong enabling environments?
  • How can D4Ag enterprises be incentivised to target marginalised segments, especially women, who are systematically left behind?
  • How can lower-income farmers gain access to such services? How shall this upscaled infrastructure be financed?
  • Can costs be reduced in the long-term by using digital technologies? Do the investments pay off?
  • Does the usage of such modernised equipment implicate labour replacement and the re-education of farmers?
