The session underscored the imperative of fostering innovation, fostering collaboration, and crafting evidence-based policies within the realm of agriculture, crucial for addressing the multifaceted challenges posed by climate change while simultaneously upholding global food security.

The spotlight was cast on Australia's substantial contributions, accentuating the necessity for forging robust global partnerships with African nations. The discourse encompassed not only research-driven initiatives but also explored avant-garde solutions within the agricultural sector.

Moreover, a pivotal aspect of our efforts involved facilitating a dynamic interchange between legislators from Australia and their counterparts from Nigeria, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Tanzania, Rwanda, South Africa, and Egypt. This collaborative liaison unfolded seamlessly during the event, where our delegates engaged in fruitful exchanges with their international counterparts, fostering a platform for shared insights and cooperative strategies.
