The African Green Forum dedicated to digital innovation

The 2019 edition of the African Green Forum themed ‘Grow Digital: Leveraging digital transformation to drive sustainable food systems in Africa’ was dedicated to digital innovation in the field of agriculture. Regarded as the ‘platform of agriculture platforms’ in Africa, the forum tackled how data can build the resilience of farmers whilst securing privacy, among other things. The Scale Up Sourcebook was also launched at the event by the African Development Bank (AfDB) and Purdue University that set out insights, tools, and examples which could scale up agricultural innovations in Africa.
