Two African laureates, dosage http://cousinscandy.net/media/widgetkit/widgets/twitter/styles/list/template.php Dr. Ousmane Badiane, pill http://chicken33.com/commande/wp-content/themes/sushi/ait-theme/elements/portfolio/aitportfolioelement.php Director for Africa, generic http://compuaprende.com/components/com_community/templates/jomsocial/layouts/admin.controls.php IFPRI, and Eric Kaduru, Founder and CEO, KadAfrica have been awarded for their profound impact on African farming.

The two were selected by the Yara Prize Committee for their work, related to African agricultural development, food security and the continent’s green revolution.

Kaduru was awarded for changing the lives of young women through agribusiness while Dr. Badiane was recognized for thought leadership with profound impact.

The Yara Prize was established in 2004 as a direct response to the former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan’s call for a green revolution in Africa.

It aims at celebrating significant achievements related to food, nutrition security and sustainable agriculture with a transformative power

According to the Yara Prize committee, both laureates have, through their personal commitment and special efforts, translated ideas on the development of African agriculture into impactful results in their respective areas of work.

“They are both examples of the ‘can-do attitude’ and drive that will continue to play a vital role in transforming agriculture in Africa,” the committee disclosed.

The 2015 awards recognize effective entrepreneurial work, which has helped build communities of resilient young women actively engaged in commercial farming and honor African thought leadership, which has been instrumental in transforming the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme  (CAADP)  agenda from a mere concept into decisive actions.

“Africa needs to do more to foster entrepreneurial agriculture and the interests of women and youth in agriculture.  More smallholder-oriented policy changes are needed to meet growth and poverty alleviation targets in rural areas,” Svein Tore Holsether, President and CEO of Yara, said.

“In 2015, the Yara Prize honors  two leading African change agents with transformational power. I wish to extend my personal congratulations to both laureates,” he added.

The two laureates will be celebrated during a Yara Prize Ceremony in Lusaka, Zambia on Wednesday, September 30, 2015.
