East Africa Institute

Over the years, unsustainable agricultural practices have been identified as a major cause of land degradation and desertification. There is an urgent need to critically look at the implications of these practices for future innovation and capacity building, both in East Africa and globally. The future calls for embracing improved, sustainable equipment and technology in farming as well as news ways of delivering effective, context-specific agricultural training.

To commemorate the World Day to Combat Drought and Desertification, the East Africa Institute, a research and policy dialogue platform of the Aga Khan University, is hosting a webinar featuring agriculture experts in the public and private sectors. This event aims to stimultate dialogue on the future of resilient food systems to ultimately inform policy and strategies for achieving food and nutritional security.
