Lab of tomorrow (lot 14): Towards a circular food system in Rwanda.

The lot14 is an open innovation process that aims at improving the food system in Rwanda by bringing together key stakeholders from the private and public sectors to co-create innovative solutions. The initiative is implemented in collaboration with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), University of St, Gallen, Nestlé, GIZ, and other partners.
