    Welcome to AgSpirations by AWARD

    Welcome to AgSpirations by AWARD. A podcast that explores how we can accelerate inclusive, agricultural-driven development in Africa.


    Brought to you by African Women in Agricultural Research and Development, AWARD, we feature immersive conversations with leading global experts. Hosted by Dorine Odongo.


    Every month, we invite you to join us as we curate a series of conversations to shape the narrative and actions around advancing inclusive agricultural-driven development in Africa in policy and practice. We will be spotlighting the global and regional trends, while surfacing the fundamental importance of gender-responsive research and development.


    AgSpirations by AWARD will amplify the voices of researchers developing home-grown solutions for inclusive, agricultural-driven development for Africa.


    Our conversations will feature successful strategies that can be upscaled to advance equitable agricultural innovation systems across Africa. We will be highlighting the need for intentional investment in African scientists and research institutions, so that they can deliver agricultural innovations that better respond to the needs and priorities of a diversity of women and men across Africa’s agricultural value chains.


    So join us to learn more as we deconstruct inclusive agricultural innovation systems and illuminate why they are crucial drivers of transforming livelihoods.
