The Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) together with the Sub Regional Organizations (ASARECA, CCARDESA, CORAF, and AFAAS) and in partnership with African Women in Agricultural Research & Development (AWARD) and the Young Professionals for Agricultural Development (YPARD) will convene an independent virtual dialogue on Gender-Responsive Investments in Africa’s Agriculture for Inclusive Food Systems under the UN Food Systems Summit. This collaboration seeks to present a strategic platform that fosters continental and global collective actions toward strengthening gender-inclusive private sector engagement in African Agricultural Research and Development.

Scheduled for May 4, 2021, from 09:00 am GMT, the virtual dialogue seeks to provide a platform for key stakeholders in agricultural research for development and the private sector to discuss game-changing options and solutions that will enhance gender-responsive investments in Africa’s agricultural research and development for inclusive food systems.

The specific objectives are:

  • To facilitate a consultative e-forum to identify and discuss the main gender issues in agricultural research for development (AR4D)
  • To propose solutions to a gender-inclusive private sector engagement
  • To contribute towards a framework for advocacy for increased investment in gender-responsive approaches in AR4D.
  • To highlight strategies for implementation of post-summit actions towards gender-responsive food systems.

Attendance to the online event is free, and advance registration is required. Please register here.
