Uganda host symposium & exhibition on agric November

 A 5-day international symposium and exhibition designed to reflect on agricultural development in the East African Community (EAC) in the last 50 years is billed to hold 4-8 November 2013 at the Serena Hotel in Kampala, Uganda, NaijaAgroNet reports.
The event is organized by the EAC Secretariat, Kilimo Trust, Association for Strengthening Agricultural Research in Eastern and Central Africa (ASARECA), Uganda's Ministries of East African Community Affairs (MEACA- Uganda), and Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF- Uganda) respectively.
The Deputy Secretary General in charge of Productive and Social sectors at the EAC Secretariat Hon. Jesca Eriyo states that "the event is also being held at a time when the continent's Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) is marking 10 years of implementation, stressing that it is only two years away from the target year 2015 for the EAC Partner States to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
NaijaAgroNet learnt  from Eriyo that the “symposium, the YiA workshop, the seminars and the executive roundtable will provide an opportunity to evaluate progress, lessons, and prospects for the future - in relation to national efforts since independence by articulating an EAC regional vision of  agriculture for the future as a modern and vibrant sector that fully takes advantage of the region's endowment with resources (youthful population, arable land, water and now the realization of oil and gas) coupled with the ever increasing global demand for food and agricultural products.”
Participants at the event will engage the private sector in agriculture including farmers, leaders of farmer organizations and agribusiness players along agricultural value chains; government ministries and departments; national agricultural research organizations; universities, and extension service providers; international and regional development organizations supporting agriculture in the EAC Region; civil society organizations; youth in agriculture among other practitioners in the agricultural sector.

  4. Yet while normal and understandable, this is also something that's addressable. (Not entirely fixable, of course, but at least addressable.) But facts aren't the way to do it -- simply getting better at announcing the who, what, where, and when of things won't really convey the flavor of this lively place. For that you need stories.
