On December 6th and 7th, 2023, the 2SCALE program marked its 10th anniversary with a replication event in Côte d'Ivoire. This celebration, hosted in Côte d'Ivoire at the Noom Hotel Abidjan, drew participation from over a dozen countries spanning America, Asia, Europe, and Africa, with a notable presence of Francophone countries where 2SCALE's initiatives are implemented. The event was a grand showcase of a decade's worth of impact, innovation, collaboration, and experience-sharing in agribusiness.
The event was graced by distinguished guests, including key stakeholders such as farmers, business champions, financial institutions, service providers, input providers, and business support service providers. These participants engaged in enriching panel discussions, offering insights into the various strategies employed by 2SCALE to bolster the agri-food sector.
A highlight of the event was the panel on green agricultural innovations, led by Drissa Sangaré, 2SCALE's Green Innovations Specialist, which explored the challenges and opportunities within Africa's agriculture sector, emphasizing the critical role of green innovations in addressing the challenges of food security, environmental preservation, and climate resilience in sub-Saharan Africa.
