African agriculture is undergoing a transformation. Now is a time of great opportunity for Africans, and for investors. For Africans, agricultural growth is driving wealth creation, poverty reduction and improved food security, especially for the 70% whose livelihoods depend on the sector. For both African and international investors, the market incentives and policy environment are getting stronger every day, and now present compelling business opportunities.

Grow Africa exists to accelerate investments into African agriculture, and ensure that these deliver on their promise of sustainable and inclusive growth. Co-ordinated by the African Union, NEPAD and the World Economic Forum, it connects governments, businesses, investors, farmers and development partners, in order to advance ambitious agricultural partnership initiatives. By acting in concert, such partners can reduce risk, overcome market barriers, and achieve transformational change. Grow Africa also catalyses dynamic leadership commitment to drive this effort, with active patronage by Heads of State, Heads of International and African Agencies, and CEOs of leading African and international firms.

Grow Africa builds upon the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP), Africa’s strategy to boost agricultural productivity. Through CAADP, over half of African countries now have robust plans for the sector, are increasing public and donor finance, and strengthening the policy environment. Grow Africa aims to support such countries if they seek help with converting their efforts in to increased flows of private sector investment.

Grow Africa will succeed through the efforts of serious and committed partners from across the public and private sector. Please join us in the work, and the opportunity, of transforming African agriculture.
