The Malabo Montpellier (MaMo) Forum provides a platform for informed dialogue and exchange among African policy makers at the highest level on agriculture, nutrition and food security. It is hosted by The Right Honorable Dr Saulos Klaus Chilima, Vice President of the Republic of Malawi and co-chaired by His Excellency Abdoulaye Bio-Tchané, Minister in charge of Planning and Development of the Republic of Benin.
Meetings of the Forum are guided by technical reports prepared by the experts gathered under the Malabo Montpellier Panel, a group of 17 leading African and international experts from the fields of agriculture, ecology, nutrition, public policy and global development. Under the leadership of its co-chairs, the Forum seeks to create a space for busy executives to exchange directly on issues of strategic importance in a context that is free from domestic pressures.This year, the Forum will be held in Kigali, Rwanda on June 25, 2019 and will focus on Digitalization in African agriculture and is supported by a technical report analyzing the experience of African countries, which are at the forefront of the application of digital innovations in the agriculture sector.
If used in the right way, digitalization will be a major pillar of the future successful growth and transformation of Africa’s agriculture sector. The report focuses on institutional innovations and policy and programme interventions and will provide critical insights on how to achieve those targets.
As we will gather in Kigali to launch the MaMo Panel’s Fourth report on Digitalization in African Agriculture, we will be joined by high-level participants including representatives at the ministerial level, senior executives of leading global development agencies and members of the Malabo Montpellier Panel.
During the Forum participants will discuss the policy, institutional and programmatic factors which have led to remarkable progress in several African countries and share lessons that can be learned across borders.
Note: Participation in the Malabo Montpellier Forum is by invitation only.
