The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the Diaspora Department of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries and the Uganda Agribusiness Alliance, will host the Ugandan Diaspora Agri-Food Investment Conference 2020, on Saturday 21st November 2020 from 2.00 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. (EAT).

The conference offers a platform for the Ugandan diaspora to share experiences about their investments, pitch initiatives, and reflect on the current state of diaspora investments in the Ugandan agri-food industry. The Conference also offers an opportunity for the Ugandan diaspora to engage with agricultural and migration stakeholders, as well as the private sector. In addition, three successful Diaspora agripreneurs, selected through a Call for proposals, will be officially recognized and awarded at the end of the conference.
