  • Draft Agenda

  • The main purpose of this document is to advocate and sensitize Africa’s Leaders about the essential role that Intra-African Trade can play in facilitating and sustaining Food and Nutrition Security and consequently the socio-economic development of the continent, in light of the upcoming African Food and Nutrition Security Day (AFNSD). It details the rich background of continental nutrition policies, plans and programmes and emphasizes the interrelationships between Trade and Food and Nutrition Security as well as successes accomplished through boosting Trade.

    The concept note describes plans for the continental commemoration of the African Food and Nutrition Security Day (AFNSD) with this year’s theme being “Investing in Intra- African Trade for Food and Nutrition Security”. It will also serve as a source of information and working document for programme managers, implementers and local organizing committees in the Ministries of Agriculture, Health, Trade & Industry, Education, Gender, Social Welfare & Protection, Science & Technology, Economic Development & Finance as well as Local Government Offices, all other Government Agencies, Private Sector Organizations, Development partners and CSOs involved in implementing the African Food and Nutrition Security Day (AFNSD). It provides concrete ideas and strategic actions that inform member states’ commemoration of the AFNSD.
