Future Agro Challenge

There’s an agricultural revolution underway. And our passion is pushing the envelope until innovative and fundable food, agtech, and agriculture innovations have spread around the globe, from farm to fork and beyond. The Future Agro Challenge is the leading global competition, bringing together the best of the best to make it all happen.

Education is a universal concern that affects the production of people and their socio-economic situation.

Only one-third of developing countries have achieved the “Education for All” goals set by the international community in 2000, but none are in sub-Saharan Africa. This is the assessment drawn up by UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, in the latest global report on education for all. In 2010, 61 million children of primary school age were out of school, according to a new UNESCO study. For 15 years, this figure has been declining. Girls, who accounted for 58 per cent of out-of-school children in 2000, compared with 53 per cent in 2010, have benefited greatly from efforts to improve access to education.
