International and German experts on Africa and development will meet in Bonn to consult about the perspectives of Africa's agricultural development.

The occasion is offered by the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), the largest international agricultural research institute in tropical Africa, based in Nigeria. Since its inception 50 years ago the institute has trained and educated more than 140,000 people in Africa for the agricultural sector. Since 2012, the training program "IITA Youth Agripreneur" has been helping more than 2,000 young Africans become successful (agricultural) entrepreneurs.

IITA is supported by, among others, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ).
