November is Global Entrepreneurship Month and to commemorate it, Corteva AgriScience and the GIBS Entrepreneurship Development Academy are hosting a series of roundtable discussions to connect entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, policymakers and ecosystem players around food security challenges.
With the deepening crisis of climate change, the sustainable management of global food systems is becoming more and more pressing. Food producers face the “triple challenge” of ensuring food security and nutrition for a growing population, supporting the livelihoods of those working in the food supply sector, and producing food in an environmentally sustainable way.
To address this issue in Africa, today’s webinar will look at how policymakers across the continent can deal with these challenges, and what the opportunities and challenges are.
Panellists providing key insights
Featuring keynote speaker Vanessa Adams, vice president of Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), the webinar will also include anecdotes from panellists Sheryl L. Hendriks, head of department and professor of food security at the University of Pretoria, Tatjana von Bormann, a food system, strategy and strategic foresight specialist, and Colleen Magner, co-founder of Reos Partners.
Mpho Mashita, radio presenter at Capricorn FM, is presenting.
The event, taking place at the GIBS campus in Pretoria, is being livestreamed on all Food For Mzansi platforms. Take part in the conversation by clicking here.
