Theme: Entrepreneurship, partnership and impactful development
Organized by The Food Bridge vzw , Meise Botanical Garden, Faab vzw and other partners. The 2019 African Diaspora Agro Food Forum will hold from 13th to 14th of September 2019 at the Bouchout Castle, Meise Botanical Gardens Belgium.
African Diaspora entrepreneurship provides a huge opportunity for the sustainable development of Africa. With a fast growing population of young people, the economic dynamics in Africa needs to be strengthened, with the incorporation of diverse stakeholders and innovative tools in the agro food sector. The relevance of this sector in the development discourse is not debatable, thus ADAF 2019 is all about creating links to entrepreneurs, research, industry, markets and communities.
The second day of the forum will focus on promoting access to markets and partnerships. There will be exhibition stands for agrofood entrepreneurs and allied sectors. There will also be a guided tour of Meise botanical gardens for registered participants . This tour will focus on crops that are important to the African food system, some of which will also be served at the closing event dinner in the evening.
