Agriculture in Africa has been impacted by soil degradation, resulting in low productivity and food insecurity. Regenerative Agriculture (RA) is an approach which is attracting global attention with its focus to restore soil health and possible contribution to climate change mitigation. In turn, in African smallholder contexts where soil is so infertile, appropriate usage of organic/inorganic fertilizer as well as biological, physical, and chemical improvement of soil is critically important. Realizing the vision of RA in Africa requires to achieve both improved soil health and food security. This event aims to define RA for Africa and explore possible technology portfolio and dissemination approaches.

We are extremely honored to have Prof. Rattan Lal and Prof. Ken Giller, the world authorities in the field of soil research and RA as keynoye speakers together with disintguised researchers and practitionors in these areas.
