Grow Africa partners convened the annual Grow Africa Investment Forum from May 8-9 in Cape Town, South Africa. Over 300 participants from all stakeholder groups engage in a highly interactive programme to:
- Review private-sector investment commitments and opportunities in member countries
- Share best practices and lessons learned to address cross-cutting issues such as finance, infrastructure, sustainability and empowering smallholder farmers
- Reaffirm the shared agenda and leadership commitment of Grow Africa partners and stakeholders ￼￼￼
Participants in the 2013 Grow Africa Investment Forum engaged in a variety of interactive sessions to address opportunities, challenges and solutions to advance sustainable agricultural transformation in African agriculture. The Investment Forum took place before and fed into the 2013 World Economic Forum.
