About AFI

Agriculture for Impact is an independent advocacy initiative led by Professor Sir Gordon Conway, author of the book One Billion Hungry: Can We Feed the World. It aims to enable better European government support for productive, sustainable, equitable and resilient agricultural development in sub-Saharan Africa, focusing in particular on the needs of smallholder farmers.

Agriculture for Impact also acts as the convenor of the Montpellier Panel, a group of international experts from the fields of agriculture, trade, policy, ecology and global development.

It is based at Imperial College London and is supported through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
