The 3rd Africa Rice Congress will be held on 21-24 October 2013 in Yaoundé, Cameroun. With the theme “Rice Science for Food Security and Agri-business Development in Africa,” the Congress will gather representatives from the public and private sector, civil society organizations, farmer associations, and research and extension communities engaged in the development of Africa’s rice sector.
The Congress will also tackle advances in rice science and technology aimed at improving production, processing, and marketing practices across the rice value chain in Africa. There will also be discussions about institutional innovations, policies, and key investments needed to significantly increase rice production, processing, and marketing in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The event will be organized by the Africa Rice Center (AfricaRice) in collaboration with the Government of Cameroun.
Registration forms are available for participants (PDF | online) and for sponsorship (PDF | online).
