Each year, the Foundation’s Agricultural Transformation Initiative (ATI) will hold an Agricultural Transformation Summit in Malawi to discuss efforts to develop and diversify Malawi’s tobacco-dominated economy, leading to a reduction in traditional reliance on the tobacco sector. The Summit will convene key private and public sector actors engaged in developing alternative livelihoods and commercially viable agricultural value chains in Malawi. The intent is to catalyze new partnerships and initiatives that will support smallholder farmers in diversifying crop production and in improving economic opportunity, thus leading to sustainable change.
Our next Summit will be held in Lilongwe early 2021. Details will be published on this site as available.
