Scientific Sessions 
Objective of the Scientific Conference
The Scientific Conference aims to bring together leading academicians, scientists, researchers and research scholars especially from the continent to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Agriculture and agricultural related sciences, and emerging development concerns with a focus on climate-smart innovations. It also provides an interdisciplinary and multi-stakeholder platform for policy makers, researchers, practitioners, educators and students to present and discuss the most recent scientific knowledge, technological innovations, emerging trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted to strengthening Agri-food systems. As in previous RUFORUM Conferences, special provision will be made for graduate students to share their research findings and profile their research.

Expected outputs and outcomes

  • Strengthened networking among members of the scientific community working in agriculture and related fields;
  • Focus given to innovation in Agri-food and nutrition systems, climate-smart agriculture and climate change adaptation and mitigation;
  • Improved presentation and communication skills for especially the graduate students;
  • Increased visibility of research and development outputs from Africa; and
