Webinar : How can Africa achieve an agricultural transformation through smart irrigation strategies?

February the 14th, from 10 am to 12 pm (GMT), Malabo Montpellier organises a webinar on "How can Africa achieve an agricultural transformation through smart irrigation strategies?".

Africa is seeing a surge of interest in irrigation among small-scale farmers as climate change brings more erratic weather. Currently, only 6 percent of arable land in Africa is irrigated, compared to 14 and 37 percent in Latin America and Asia respectively. At the same time, a growing population across the continent demands more, reliable and a continuous supply of food. It is estimated that without additional investment in irrigation, the share of people at risk of hunger could increase by 5 percent by 2030 and 12 percent by 2050.
