New technology and business skills create rural jobs
Africa is on the move, with signs of progress and growing prosperity for millions of its people. The continent has witnessed sustained economic growth and a modernisation of its economy for more than two decades powered by an increasingly inclusive agricultural transformation and by rapid growth in digital innovations.
This session introduces frontier technologies and innovative thinkers, demonstrates pathways to integrate new technologies in rural communities, and supports grassroots innovation and development. It is designed to project a long-term vision of the next generation of smallholder agriculture projects, looking ten to thirty years into the future.
