In an era of global challenges and crises, the significance of sustainable agri-food systems has become increasingly evident. In response to the urgent issues confronting Africa’s agriculture sector, the Africa Network of Agricultural Policy Research Institutes (ANAPRI) is convening a crucial webinar in partnership with the Alliance for Commodity Trade in Eastern and Southern Africa (ACTESA), a specialized agency operating under the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), and the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Security Policy Research, Capacity, and Influence (PRCI).

Imagine life as a flowing river, with progress as the current propelling us ahead. Stagnation acts like a dam, hindering our potential and blocking the path for others.

This concept embodies the essence of “Ubuyantanshi”, a Zambian term representing forward movement and progress.
