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.
