Last June, African Heads of State and Government renewed and strengthened their commitment to achieve food and nutrition security on the continent. They adopted a remarkably ambitious set of concrete goals to be reached by 2025, in their ‘Malabo Declaration on Accelerated Agricultural Growth and Transformation for Shared Prosperity and Improved Livelihoods’. Komla Prosper Bissi, Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) Adviser for Trade and Agribusiness at the African Union Commission’s Department of Rural Economy and Agriculture, explains the ongoing process to design the « Malabo Declaration Implementation Strategy and Roadmap » that will have to be adopted by AU Leaders at their next Summit in January 2015. ECDPM is involved in this process as part of its partnership with the AUC and other key African institutions in charge of CAADP, so get in touch if you want to learn more.
