Description

The forum aims to generate discussions on how consistent and accurate investment in agriculture, rural development, development aid, research and innovation can be increased because for most countries in Africa a healthy agricultural sector is essential to overcome hunger and poverty and is a pre-requisite for overall economic growth. Food security solutions in Africa should become visionary, long-term and sustainable.

A flurry of changes and new food security regulations are the expected outcomes from this forum which will occur by assessing current activities, building a refocused program and establishing monitoring mechanisms to address the needs of a dynamic food security program. Poverty, climate change, food price hikes, water scarcity, land rights, fairer agricultural policies - all of these issues and more will be addressed to ensure that infinitely better management of natural and financial resources and more strategic investment are implemented.
