The Third All Africa Horticultural Congress (AAHC) is an initiative of the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS). It is a platform created to facilitate interaction among the different sectors of the horticulture industry in Africa, build synergies, and ultimately, unleash the underexploited potential of horticulture in Africa. The AAHC holds on rotational basis in the sub-regions of Africa. It is designed to cater to the diverse needs of the science, industry/business and capacity building sectors of the horticulture industry. The congress featured symposia, an exhibition, field trips, brokerage of new business partnerships, a photo competition, and social events; all carefully put together to express the various perspectives of the theme ‘Horticulture for improved livelihoods’.
GAIN hosted a Post Harvest Loss Alliance (PLAN) symposium with the project’s core alliance partners in Nigeria.
