6th Annual Sweetpotato for Profit and Health Initiative meeting

September 29, 2015 - October 2, 2015

The theme of this year’s meeting is ‘Together, 10 million by 2020’. This refers to the overall goal of the Sweetpotato for Profit and Health Initiative which is to reduce malnutrition and increase incomes among at least 10 million sub-Saharan African households through improved varieties of sweetpotato and their diversified use by 2020.

Scientists and experts, government representatives, academics and donors from the agriculture, nutrition and development communities from 14 sub-Saharan countries will present and discuss progress in sweetpotato science and delivery along the entire sweetpotato value chain and showcase innovations and impact case studies in agriculture, nutrition and health innovations and outline the state of sweetpotato investment in sub-Saharan Africa.

During the meeting, the new-look Sweetpotato Knowledge Portal will be re-launched. The portal is a user-driven online platform that provides an arena where sweetpotato actors meet virtually and is a single access point for discovery, acquisition and sharing of information about sweetpotato research and project activities in sub-Saharan Africa.
