Building on Progress in Rwanda: Compact2025 Forum

Ending hunger and malnutrition, and building human capacity is “a moral obligation that we need to fulfill as the current generation,” highlighted Dr. Gerardine Mukeshimana, the Honorable Minister of Agriculture and Animal Resources, as she opened the Compact2025 Forum in Kigali, Rwanda on October 23, 2017. Jointly hosted by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Resources of Rwanda, the Forum built on recommendations from the first Roundtable Discussion held in Kigali last year, and focused on how Rwanda can accelerate progress to end hunger and malnutrition by 2025.
