Side Event on “The Partnership to Create an EverGreen Agriculture in Africa” in Accra, Ghana 15th July 2013

The EverGreen Agriculture Parnership is hosting a side event at the upcoming FARA African Agricultural  Science Week in Accra, Ghana.  

The event will update participants on recent developments and foster discussion on new partnership opportunities to support EverGreen Agricultures broad-based effort for transformative change. Speakers will present the global context that is driving EverGreen Agriculture as well as on ground experiences of the spread of EverGreen agricultural practices such as farmer-managed natural regeneration in West Africa, the use of fertilizer trees in Southern Africa, and the scaling up approaches that have contributed to these successes.  Senior discussants will share their perspectives and suggestions on the process of scaling-up and the planning imperative for accelerated expansion. Participants will be invited in the Q&A plenary discussion to query about the ways forward in the creation of an EverGreen Agriculture system in their own contexts.

Speakers will include Dr.  Dennis  Garrity, ICRAF, Abasse Tougiani, NRAN, Niger, Norbert Akolbila, World Vision, Ghana and Jonathan Muriuki, ICRAF, in addition to an exciting panel of senior discussants.
