Colleagues from all areas within GIZ as well as external colleagues were invited. The current speaker team had made a goal to aim at broad participation of national staff (NMA).

The agricultural portfolio within GIZ comprises different divisions and project types. The conference saw a lot of contributions from the global, regional and regional projects which were collaborating and exchanging their methods, ideas and knowledge.

All sessions were held in English and in French. Although many participants were able to speak English, French  — and some also Somali, Swahili, Arabic, German, Twi, Amharic, Hausa and many more — the vibrant bilingualism of SNRD Africa is something to be kept and cherished.
