The annual Agri-ProFocus Kenya network day was held on 31 October at the Southern Sun Mayfair hotel in Nairobi. It brought together stakeholders in Kenya’s agriculture sector for networking, matchmaking and deal-making, as well as for discussions on the emerging and issues of focus and concern in the agriculture sector.
Since 2012, Agri-ProFocus has been implementing so-called gender in value chain coaching tracks through its Agri-Hub networks. The coaching tracks aim at increasing the capacities of organisations for gender-inclusive value chain development. But also the coaches need some coaching! A training was organised in Arusha to address the skills required for successful coaching.
From the 4th to 8th November, 2013 the ICT4Ag Conference was held at Serena Hotel – Kigali. The conference was hosted by CTA and MINAGRI in partnership with many other organizations including Agri-ProFocus. More than 400 (policy makers, government officials, farmers, development practitioners, ICT solution developers from the private sector, etc.) attended the conference. The main objective of the conference was to promote ICTs as an effective driver of agricultural growth and transformation.
