The Fasmicro Group team just arrived in Dakar (Senegal) for the Malabo Montpellier Panel. Over the last few months, we have worked with Imperial College London as Africa’s leader in precision farming on a new document it will unveil to the world.
To give you some background, the Malabo Montpellier Panel convenes 17 leading experts in agriculture, ecology, nutrition and food security to guide policy choices by African governments to accelerate progress toward food security and improved nutrition in Africa. The Panel identifies areas of progress and positive change across the continent and assesses what successful countries have done differently. It then identifies the most important institutional innovations and policy and program interventions that can be replicated and scaled up by other countries. Since January 2017, the Malabo Montpellier Panel has published three reports: Nourished: How Africa Can Build a Future Free from Hunger and Malnutrition (September 2017); Mechanized: Transforming Africa’s agriculture value chains (July 2018); and Water-Wise: Smart Irrigation Strategies for Africa(December 2018).
Eminent strategist and business leader, Mr. Gbenga Bamiji, FCA, will deliver a vision on that promise where hunger will disappear in the community of farmers.
