It is with great pleasure that we share with you today the new Montpellier Panel report ‘Growth with Resilience: Opportunities in African Agriculture’.

In the lead up to the Rio+20, G8 and G20 summits, where global leaders will discuss how to build a more sustainable global economy, this report looks at agriculture’s role in sub-Saharan Africa. In particular in supporting green growth, food and nutrition security, ecosystem services and combating climate change.

It outlines three key areas critical to achieving agricultural growth with resilience: resilient markets, resilient agriculture, and resilient people. The report also sets out the importance of global political leadership to attain this goal.

Members of the Montpellier Panel will present this report today – Wednesday 21st March – to UK development experts at the Department for International Development (DFID) and on Thursday 22nd March to African and European development experts at the European Commission.

Download the report and join the debate either by posting a comment here on our blog or join in the conversation via Twitter by following @Ag4Impact and using the hashtag #ResilientAg

We look forward to hearing from you.
