Applications are open for the US$100,000 Africa Food Prize, an award recognising an outstanding individual or institution that is leading the effort to change the reality of farming in Africa from a struggle to survive into a business that thrives.
The US$100,000 prize celebrates Africans who are taking control of Africa’s agriculture agenda, shining a spotlight on bold initiatives and technical innovations that can be replicated across the continent to create a new food security and economic opportunity for all Africans.
Applicants must contribute to reducing poverty and hunger, or improving food and nutrition security in measurable terms. They must also make a contribution to providing a vital source of income or employment in measurable terms, and have potential for transformative change through scalability, replication and sustainability.
Applications are open here until June 17.
