Grow Africa supports a schedule of events at which countries and investors can connect, share best practice, and promote investment. Our key milestone is an annual Grow Africa Investment Forum that preludes the WEF Africa Summit, and aims catalyze new partnerships, investment commitments, and insights for countries supported by Grow Africa and potential partners. In addition we support countries hosting their own investment forums, and link to related events that offer useful platforms for advancing agricultural investment.
The annual Grow Africa Investment Forum marked a historic shift in private sector investments into Africa’s agriculture. Over 300 leaders engaged in a highly interactive programme to:
- Review private-sector investment commitments and opportunities in member countries
- Share best practices and lessons learned to address cross-cutting issues such as finance, infrastructure, sustainability and empowering smallholder farmers
- Reaffirm the shared agenda and leadership commitment of Grow Africa partners and stakeholders ￼￼￼
