An innovative African initiative to strengthen food systems while combating Ebola
NAIROBI (15 November, 2014) — Thousands of smallholder farmers in Liberia are set to benefit from an innovative seed distribution initiative that seeks to combine food security and Ebola containment strategies in Liberia.
The African Development Bank Group (AfDB) and the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) held high-level discussions in Abidjan on Thursday, November 20 with a view to addressing challenges faced by Africa’s smallholder farmers.
Both institutions have agreed to strengthen their cooperation to speed up Africa’s agriculture transformation.
