Kenya to host the AGRF 2021 Summit


Kenya will host the AGRF 2021 Summit, which this year will focus on the bold actions needed for agriculture to fuel the continent’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and continued food systems transformation. The four-day Summit will take place from September 7 until 10 in Nairobi, Kenya.
Speaking during a courtesy call to Uhuru Kenyatta, President, Republic of Kenya, Hailemariam Dessalegn, the former Ethiopia Prime Minister and AGRF Board Chair, applauded the Kenyan Government for making agriculture a priority, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It’s inspiring to see the progress Kenya has made in agriculture, this is the kind of visionary leadership that the continent needs to end hunger and malnutrition and for our continent’s shared prosperity,” Hailemariam Dessalegn said.
This year the Summit is expected to host over 10,000 delegates virtually with a scaled-down physical event in Nairobi.
