There is much talk about spurring transformation of the food system globally and in Africa. About time.

Transforming agriculture in Africa to provide sufficient nutritious foods, poverty reduction and economic growth is an essential task

Wasafiri is delighted to share a huge milestone! Generation Africa has announced the Top 12 GoGettaz Agripreneur Prize finalists for 2019 and the list is impressive! 

I am very excited to join Wasafiri as the Senior Manager, Food Systems and Inclusive Growth, based out of Wasafiri’s Nairobi office. Why is this move so exciting?

Might a bird’s eye view of investments in agri-food systems in Africa alarm or excite us, as we consider the findings of the EAT-Lancet Commission? Is the future food supply in Africa sufficiently incentivised to transition to meet future demand for healthier diets?

Ten million young Africans enter the workforce each year, but only three million new job opportunities area created. This has African and European policy-makers quivering in their shiny shoes.

How might stakeholders in food systems respond to ‘a global imperative’ on future diets?
Could a stronger systems approach help?
