IITA hosts expert workshop on trade, innovation, and entrepreneurship for improved FNSSA
Under the Long-term EU-AU Research and Innovation Partnership for Food and Nutrition Security and Sustainable Agriculture (LEAP4FNSSA) project, IITA hosted agrifood experts from 13 organizations from Africa and Europe to discuss two recently conducted studies to understand the impact of trade, innovation, and entrepreneurship for improved food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture (FNSSA). The expert workshop, facilitated and hosted by IITA Ghana, took place on 13 September.
The experts and other key stakeholders discussed the findings from a study on agrifood trade between Europe and Africa. They also reviewed another research on innovation and entrepreneurship with particular reference to gender and youth led by IITA Sahel Africa Hub Director Abdoulaye Tahirou. The authors of both studies and four invited experts discussed the findings of the studies and their implications for improved FNSSA. IITA Consultant Dr Mastawel Yami presented the IITA-led study report.
