10th Meeting of the Malabo Montpellier (MaMo) Forum

May 24 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

10th Meeting of the Malabo Montpellier (MaMo) Forum

Bio-based innovations can offer technological solutions to many of the economic, social, and environmental challenges facing the continent.

The use of renewable biological resources, primarily from the agricultural sector, provides a platform from which to accelerate a global transition toward greater sustainability. A vibrant bioeconomy can increase agricultural productivity and support the expansion of agro-industries, both of which are vital for sustainable economic growth, employment generation, and enhancing economic competitiveness. Meanwhile, greater uptake of biotechnology can also effectively increase food availability, raise its nutrient content, while promoting new food (and non-food) value chains, and improving food safety. There are also opportunities for protecting, conserving, and restoring biodiversity, and climate change mitigation.

The 10th Meeting of the Malabo Montpellier Forum will launch the Panel’s 10th report titled “Nature’s Solutions: Policy Innovations and Opportunities for Africa’s Bioeconomy”.

With this report, on the opportunities of a bioeconomy, the Malabo Montpellier Panel draws attention to fields of innovations that are rapidly evolving worldwide, and where Africa is well-positioned to create its own unique approach, despite starting from a comparatively low base. We believe this report comes at an important time as we prepare for COP27 and governments mobilize to develop strategies aimed at leveraging the interlinkages between food systems transformation and climate action.
