Webinar on AGRA's Failed Promises

Welcome to this webinar on AGRA's Failed Promises

Posted by Health of Mother Earth Foundation on Thursday, August 6, 2020

A recently released report, “False Promises: The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA),” by a coalition of German and African civil society groups, “False Promises,” shows that the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) is failing on its own terms. Based partly on a research paper by Timothy A. Wise, the report underscores the destructive work of AGRA and similar models of agriculture in Africa.

Health of Mother Earth Foundation in collaboration with AFJN is hosting a webinar that will highlight the failed promises of AGRA and the so-called Green Revolution and chart the path for the liberation of our agricultural systems.
