The Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa hosted a trailblazing hybrid convening on May 24-26, 2022, to generate a shared vision for the growth of African agroecological entrepreneurs and territorial markets centered on equitable and sustainable development for a healthy food system.

Agroecological entrepreneurs, market leaders and vendors, civil society organisations, consumer groups, women’s organisations, service providers (accelerators, incubators, business and technical assistance), donors and investors, public officials, diplomatic missions, academic researchers, and the media attended the event.

This gathering was more than just a networking event; it encouraged debate and exchanging peer experiences for action. Leaders from many sectors discussed and exchanged expertise, and an action plan was formed to strengthen support services, finance and investment flows, and national and international policies to allow agroecological entrepreneurs and territorial markets to thrive in Africa.
