Do you have a big idea that has been piloted successfully in East Africa that focuses on closing yield gaps in crop and livestock value chains, reducing postharvest losses and improving agri-market efficiencies? If yes, then apply for the 2016 GAIA AgriTech Innovation Challenge.

African Women in Agricultural research and Development (AWARD) is accepting applications for its 2016 Gender in Agribusiness Investments in Africa (GAIA) AgriTech Innovation Challenge in order to increase agribusiness investments in technological and business model innovations that benefit African women value chain actors.
