The Norway Post : African Green Revolution Conference in Oslo
Kofi Annan, President Bingu Wa Mutharika of Malawi and other key leaders have this week met to discuss Africa’s future at the 3rd annual African Green Revolution Conference held in Oslo.
Together with a large number of business and political leaders they are gathered in Oslo this week at the African Green Revolution Conference to develop a strategic action plan for change and secure commitments to ensure a lasting solution to Africa’s food vulnerability. With its enormous potential to grow regional economies and feed the population, sustainable agricultural development will be the focal point of discussion.
Kofi Annan says: "These challenges are too great for one sector, for one population, to address alone. Only when the international community works in partnership with all affected stakeholders will we be able to achieve these critical goals and see real outcomes for the people of Africa."
The board of the Yara Foundation will award its annual Yara Prize for outstanding achievement in agricultural entrepreneurship to two African visionaries at the conference.
