RUFORUM’s 13th Annual General Meeting (AGM)

FANRPAN participated in RUFORUM’s 13th Annual General Meeting held 25-27 October 2017 in Lilongwe, Malawi, where the CEO ad interim, Dr Tobias Takavarasha delivered a message of support.
In his remarks, Dr Takavarasha highlighted that the FANRPAN partnership with RUFORUM dates to the origins of FANRPAN, when the Ministers of Agriculture from Eastern and Southern Africa saw the need for an independent policy input to address chronic food insecurity and the challenges of managing natural resources. In 1997, the Deans of the Faculties of Agriculture from eight countries in the SADC region, working as a Consortium met and agreed to set up FANRPAN in response to the decision of the Ministers.
