Supporting Africa’s agriculture sector leaders to deliver transformational change.
The Centre for African Leaders in Agriculture (CALA) has been established to support leaders spearheading agriculture transformation and the advancement of sustainable practices.
Achieving Africa’s food security and economic growth requires leaders who are responsive, adaptable and collaborative, while also integrating new strategies for environmentally sustainable agriculture.

Advanced Leadership Programme
Africa’s food security challenges require results-oriented leaders in government, the private sector and civil society who are responsive, adaptable, and able to lead collaboration, mobilize real change, and ensure delivery of country priorities.
CALA’s Advanced Leadership Programme is a collaborative, hands-on, and tailored experience for senior and rising leaders in Africa’s agriculture sector. The programme is designed for individuals spearheading and directly implementing specific country-level agriculture initiatives.
