Agency and Accountability: Securing Citizens’ Voices and Participation in Africa’s Agricultural Transformation

January 24th, 2023

TrustAfrica, through its Agriculture Advocacy Programme and together with its partners is organizing a policy dialogue convening themed: “Agency and Accountability : Securing Citizens’ Voices and Participation in Africa’s Agriculture Development” from the 2 to 3 April 2019 in Kigali, Rwanda. The convening brings together partners and like-minded institutions to strengthen civic engagement in the agriculture, environment and natural resource policy making space. The convening will profile TrustAfrica’s on-going agriculture advocacy work and impact, as well as advance proposals for harnessing opportunities and initiatives to better support civil society in addressing the pressing challenges in the African agricultural sector.  It is a timely platform to strengthen conversations and deepen debates on how to sustain the agenda for a more inclusive and sustained citizen’s voice, amongst a broad base network of non-state actors and, with government actors on emerging and pressing challenges on Africa’s development.
