The AgriFood Africa Connect Virtual Missions 2020 brought together 878 stakeholders from African countries and the UK, through a series of 40 online events.

During the missions, over 85 expert speakers highlighted challenges and trends within African AgriFood systems. The missions also provided valuable networking and collaboration opportunities for African and UK organisations.

The Virtual Missions were part of AgriFood Africa Connect, and are a new way to connect stakeholders without having to travel, which was impossible during the pandemic. The Virtual Missions also allow more people to attend and are more inclusive, meaning more powerful connections can be built.
