Nairobi, Kenya, hosts the Alliance’s regional hub for Africa.
Agriculture and food systems will continue to be the engine of economic growth in Africa for decades to come. But reaching the continent’s potential requires innovative science to ensure both agriculture and food systems are competitive, efficient, resilient, and sustainable.
With a presence spanning the majority of states in the Sub-Saharan area, the Alliance team in Africa is unlocking impact-driven, science-based solutions to support the rapid transformation of the Region through agriculture.
Through our work on the ground, and in close collaboration with other CGIAR centers, we are addressing agricultural biodiversity and development, in close collaboration with the private sector, NGOs, governments, development partners, and farmers. Further, by making research processes more inclusive, we are also unlocking climate finance, supporting more informed investments in agriculture and food systems, and prioritizing limited resources towards a healthier, wealthier continent. For an African continent where healthy, affordable food is accessible for everyone.
