Building on the values and principles established by the Yara Prize, the Africa Food Prize puts a bright spotlight on achievements and innovations with transformative power that can be scaled and replicated across the continent to eliminate hunger and poverty and provide a vital new source of employment and income.

  • Proven leadership potential of the individual or organization, specifically the ability to persevere despite significant challenges or risks
