Investing in African Opportunity Crops through the Vision for Adapted Crops and Soils

About:  We invite you to the launch event of two groundbreaking new reports on African Opportunity Crops through the Vision for Adapted Crops and Soils  (VACS). VACS was launched in February 2023, in partnership with the African Union, FAO, and U.S. Department of State, with the goal of advancing more climate-resilient and nutritious food systems in Africa. A team of researchers from AgMIP, based at the Climate School, participate in VACS, conducting research to better understand how African opportunity crops can be used to address the challenges that African food systems face under climate change.

Speakers: 

Namukolo Covic, ILRI, President of African Nutrition Society

Cynthia Rosenzweig, AgMIP, Co-Founder; Columbia Climate School

Ibrahim Assane Mayaki, African Union Special Envoy for Food Systems

Lynnette Neufeld, FAO, Director of the Food and Nutrition Division
