EVENT: AgKnowledge Africa Share Fair on Agricultural and Rural Development Knowledge in Africa
The Share Fair on Agricultural and Rural Development Knowledge in Africa will be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 18-21 October 2010.
Efforts to create, share and communicate ‘rural’ knowledge and information ‘of Africa’ are hardly known beyond the small communities directly involved in them. Yet, there is an enormous amount of innovation and experimentation across the continent. This event will showcase the ways that agricultural and rural knowledge in and of Africa is created, shared, communicated, and put to use.
The meeting will bring together a wide range of people and organizations working with Africa’s agricultural and rural knowledge: Farmer organizations, extensionists, researchers, students, academia, policy shapers, information and communication specialists, commercial advisors and input providers, and governments.
