This is the second in our series of podcasts from the 2023 Water for Food Global Conference, produced by the Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute at the University of Nebraska (DWFI) and held May 8-11 in Lincoln, Neb. In this episode, we hear from Dr. Mure Agbonlahor, who works at the African Union Commission as senior Policy Officer, and Louise Mabulo, chef, farmer, entrepreneur, and founder of The Cacao Project.
Agbonlahor discussed “Financing irrigation for smallholder farmers across scales” and “Policy and pathways for scaling smallholder irrigation” at the conference, while Mabulo served as a keynote luncheon speaker and discussed her “View from the field” on a panel with farmers from other countries. Mabulo was featured in the very first Daugherty Water for Food podcast three years ago.
