In the framework of the Africa-EU Partnership, the fifth African Union-European Union Agriculture Ministerial Conference foresees four high-level thematic sessions, side events and a ministerial plenary session.
CGIAR supports the AU-EU partnership to unlock the potential of African agriculture, with a long and proud commitment with African partners to bring science-based innovations to smallholder farmers in Africa, and strong collaborations with EU funders.
The thematic sessions will be held in parallel in the morning and will cover: sustainable investment in support of agrifood; research and innovation for smarter policies and technologies; climate resilience of agri-food systems; and regional trade integration. AU and EU Ministers of Agriculture, together with representatives of other international organizations will convene in the afternoon plenary session to take stock of the thematic discussions and pave the way for the future cooperation.
