19th RUFORUM Annual General Meeting (AGM)

19th RUFORUM Annual General Meeting (AGM 

For five days, the university professors focused on creating profitable partnerships with other universities in order to fast track Africa’s development.

Reflections at the 19th General Assembly of the RUFORUM centred on the theme, “Transforming Higher Education to Sustainably Feed and Create Prosperity for Africa.”

RUFORUM 2023 was a platform to make agriculture attractive for young people, fight unemployment, climate change, ensure job and wealth creation, integration and sustainable development. The university experts from over 40 universities in Africa rounded up the meeting after having established a plan of action that will permit them achieve targeted goals.

The side event brought together the current 50 IRC signatories, potential members and oth- er interested R&I partnerships to discuss the key components of the IRC’s CEA-FIRST Project. The side-event also served as an opportunity to enlarge the membership of the IRC and update the directory of the Focal Persons representing the current signatories of the IRC.

The objective was to present the process and key elements of the operationalization of the IRC while promoting it as the main AU-EU AKIS Platform on the FNSSA and building the ownership and partnerships among the relevant actors for stronger food systems, sustainable growth and jobs. Read/download the Programme
