The idea that led to the establishment of EBAFOSA
When maximized through industrialization, Africa’s agro-value chain is projected to be worth up to $1 trillion by 2030. Through Innovative Volunteerism, EBAFOSA is providing youth with an opportunity to network and tap into this $1 trillion economy. For example, networking with industry leaders engaged along…
Climate smart agriculture (CSA) is a combination of approaches that seek to enhance agricultural productivity without piling on emissions. However, CSA main priority is not prioritizing the health of ecosystems that are the foundation of food production through provision of goods & services like pollinators…
EBAFOSA is country-driven to ensure it remains responsive to country priorities. This enhances ownership by country stakeholders critical to sustainability. EBAFOSA prioritizes, through the inter-agency policy task-forces, integration at policy level where strategic, long term decision making occurs. Policy integration is critical to ensure EBAFOSA…
EBAFOSA is demonstrating how integrating technologies– (rather than considering in silos) is critical to maximizing agro-productivity. For example, on-farm EBA technologies are being integrated with clean energy & ICT to unlock sustainable EBA-driven agriculture led industrialization powered by clean energy. Eliminating food losses due to…
Innovative Volunteerism is the EBAFOSA modus operandi. Young people should get in touch with their respective EBAFOSA National branches ( ), establish the gaps that need to be bridged and volunteer their time, skills, and networks among other resources to forge partnerships with complementary stakeholders…
By convening & forging the necessary multi-sectorial partnerships needed to bridge policy & operational gaps to maximize productivity & climate proof Africa food systems by establishing sustainable EBA-driven agriculture led, clean energy powered industrialization. For example, at the policy level, EBAFOSA is convening policy makers…
EBAFOSA modus operandi is based on forging voluntary mutual partnerships among complementary stakeholders – state & non-state; individual & institutional. These stakeholders volunteer physical & non-psychical resources at their disposal - especially professional skills, organizational & professional networks, ongoing initiatives - to build mutual partnerships …
While Africa is faced with significant socioeconomic (food insecurity, poverty, unemployment etc) & climate resilient challenges, the continent does not lack ideas, resources, nor innovations to solve these challenges. Rather it lacks the institutional harmonization & incentives needed to bridge policy & operational gaps to…
Ebafosa pillars
The above is achieved through the EBAFOSA modus operandi. EBAFOSA modus operandi is premised on fomenting voluntary mutually beneficial partnerships among complementary actors to bridge policy & operational gaps towards establishing EBA based agro-industrial zones powered by clean energy with efficient linkages to markets &…
With the nexus challenges of food insecurity, poverty, high youth unemployment, low labor productivity, energy poverty, environmental degradation and climate change - which compounds these challenges – escalating across Africa, Africa’s socioeconomic progress in actualizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Agenda 2063 is behind…
Amalgamating clean energy expansion to power value addition of environmentally sustainably produced agro-products presents a potential catalytic area for Africa targeted by the EBAFOSA. The amalgamation is meant to maximize productivity of agriculture by cutting on postharvest losses, losses due to climate change & losses…
Policy is the biggest driver of change. Maximizing productivity of the catalytic areas will need harmonization of policies across multiple ministries to ensure they complement the amalgamation of EBA-driven Agriculture with clean energy value addition. For example, agriculture ministry will need to work with environment…
Quality standardization is a critical market enabler to building a competitive industry. And to formalize this integrated paradigm aligned to Africa’s area of strength, and establish it competitively will require benchmarks, regulations & certifications to standardize processes, technologies & techniques across the continent. This is…
