WEBINAR: COVID-19 and African Food Security

18 June 2020. Africa’s drive for food security is threatened by the COVID-19 pandemic, which could set back fragile gains in agricultural efficiency, market integration and climate-resilient innovation. Africa’s struggle to feed itself will also have an impact on global supplies.

The Aspen Global Innovators Group organised a live conversation with:
  • Esther Ngumbi, a Kenyan food security expert and Assistant Professor of Entomology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 
  • Cedric Habiyaremye, a Rwandan crop scientist and Research Associate at Washington State University. 

They discussed how COVID-19 is playing out in Africa’s agricultural sector, and what can be done to minimize the long-term damage from the pandemic. The conversation was moderated by Dan Glickman, former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture.
