AgKnowledge Africa: Share Fair on Agricultural and Rural Development Knowledge in Africa


Share Fair on Agricultural and Rural Development Knowledge in Africa
ILRI Campus, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 18-21 October 2010

The "AgKnowledge Africa Share Fair" will showcase the ways agricultural and rural knowledge in and of Africa is created, shared, communicated, and applied.

Like the 2009 edition in Rome, this Fair will be an opportunity to share experiences from all over the African continent with a wide range of people and organizations: Farmer organizations, extensionists, researchers, students, academia, policy shapers, information and communication specialists, private sector actors, international and regional organizations, and governments.

The heart of the Fair will be a series of thematic ‘learning pathways’ in a process of mapping, sharing and connecting people and activities.These pathways will illustrate how African ‘talents’ are creating, sharing and using rural knowledge - at the grassroots, in research and policy, and through intermediaries. The pathways will focus on agriculture and climate change, land, livestock, and water.

A wide range of knowledge types and modes of sharing will be covered – oral, visual, drama, music, video, radio, documentary, publishing, storytelling, web-based, geospatial, networked, mobile, computer-based, SMS, or journalistic.

More information on the event is available from: Download the brochure [PDF].

Call for proposals closes on September 5, 2010.
