From 27 to 29 October 2020, AFSA held its third Biennial Food Systems Conference and Celebration. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, AFSA decided to hold this conference virtually. The three-day event explored issues relating to “Shaping the Future of Food Markets in Africa: What kind of markets do we need for the transition to agroecology?” Three main objectives informed each day of the conference:
1. Understanding African markets and trends,
2. Shaping the future of markets for the transition to agroecology, and
3. Changing policy towards markets for healthy food systems
