Improving the efficiency of the agriculture sector is an essential step towards sustainable development and poverty reduction, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa.

However, advances in agriculture have lagged in the region, eroding the global competitiveness of many African crops over recent decades. New ideas, approaches and partnerships are needed to reverse this trend. To begin generating these, IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, joined with the European Union, Rabobank, and Zanaco to host the Regional Agriculture and Food Security Forum on April 6-9, 2010 in Livingstone, Zambia. The forum was facilitated by Dalberg Global Development Advisors. This report contains the most notable results from the forum.
