The Yara Prize 2012 has been won by Eleni-Gebremedhin (Dr.) outgoing CEO of the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX) and Agnes Kalibata (Dr.), Minister of Agriculture and Animal resources of Rwanda. According to sources in Oslo, Norway the Yara Prize committee has selected the two prominent African female leaders for their work on groundbreaking areas for the African green revolution: effective public policies in support of agricultural growth and profound innovation in global markets. “Yara creates impact by addressing global challenges. By awarding the Yara prize, we salute the champions of sustainable agricultural development. I wish to extend my personal congratulations to the laureates,” Jorgen Ole Haslestad, President and CEO of Yara and chairman of the Yara Prize committee, said. The two laureates will be celebrated at the state Banquet/Gala night on September 27 during the Africa Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) 2012 in Arusha, Tanzania. It is to be recalled that the late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi has won the 2005 Yara Prize and donated the USD 200,000 prize money to female students’ scholarship. Eleni has been awarded the prize for showing visionary and remarkable leadership in managing the transformation process toward an efficiently functioning market, especially for smallholder coffee producers in Ethiopia. Kalibata is also being awarded the prize for her great leadership in the transformation of food security and agricultural development in Rwanda in a relatively short period of time. She currently serves as the Minister of Agriculture and Animal resources for the Republic of Rwanda.
