Thurs, Sept 1 Press conference: Our Africa, Our Agriculture — African farmers and faith leaders demand an end to the failed Green Revolution
Join this critical press conference to hear from a broad alliance of African civil society, faith groups and farmer leaders, hosted by the Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa — Africa's largest civil society movement, representing 200 million people.

Ahead of the annual African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF), community leaders are calling for an end to the failing Green Revolution. The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) has deepened the continent’s dependence on expensive imported inputs and undermined the resilience of Africa’s food systems.

Africa's largest food producer networks are demanding a decisive shift away from imported fossil-fuel based fertilizers and chemicals, and towards self-sufficient, ecological farming that revitalizes soil and protects ecosystems.

At this press conference, tune-in to hear from leaders who will explain: how dependency on foreign inputs are harming Africa’s resilience to the climate crisis, why AGRA’s initiatives undermine crop/diet diversity and ecosystems, and the ecologically sound alternatives needed for true climate resilience.

English, French interpretation will be provided.
