AfDB partners with Purdue University to make Technologies available to African Farmers
The African Development Bank (AfDB) and Purdue University in the United States have agreed to work together to make technologies available to millions of farmers in Africa.
One of the projects in the partnership is a two-day conference to scale up agricultural technologies in developing countries, to be held at the Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, from September 25-27, 2018.
“A number of technologies are available that we could scale up to farmers in Africa. We will be interested in supporting and participating in the conference,” AfDB President Akinwumi Adesina said at a meeting with researchers and faculty at Purdue University on Monday, October 23.
