Expert workshop on trade, innovation and entrepreneurship for food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture

LEAP4FNSSA has recently conducted two studies to understand the impact of trade, innovation and entrepreneurship for improved FNSSA.

  1. The trade study aimed at:
  2. Understanding the current situation of AU-EU trade in the agri-food sector, spatial and temporal variability of the trade, implications of inter-continental trade in Africa, future scenarios and their impacts on such trade, and opportunities and threats of the current and future scenarios of inter and intra-continental trade on FNSSA;
  3. Recommending research and innovation (R&I) initiatives to improve FNSSA through inter and intra-continental trade, as well as formulating future research questions to assess the ability of such initiatives to improve FNSSA, and enhance opportunities and reduce threats to achieving the SDGs.

This expert workshop brings together key stakeholders of LEAP4FNSSA to discuss the findings of the two studies, and share experiences to enrich the recommendations, which can assist in laying a strong foundation of the International Research Consortium (IRC).

The event will be held in Accra (Ghana) at the campus of the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) on Tuesday 13 September 2022 from 9:00am to 4:00pm (local time; GMT) in a hybrid format: participation either in-person or online.
