African Green Revolution Forum 2019 - Project showcase – Marketplace of ag-tech solutions

Event Overview

Agricultural transformation remains one of Africa’s most pressing priorities but has been difficult to achieve. In this context, digitalisation for agriculture (D4Ag) can be a game changer in supporting and accelerating agricultural transformation across the continent. D4Ag has the potential to not only support agricultural transformation but to do so both sustainably and inclusively.
