It is in this light, that following key messages specifically highlight issues to augment and accelerate implementation. Through Agenda 2063 as well as other policy frameworks, including CAADP-Malabo and the Africa Regional Nutrition Strategy (2015-2025), Africa has already identified some key targets important in realising resilient and inclusive food systems.
Message 3: Finally, important to conclude by highlighting that, through Agenda 2063 and CAADP-Malabo implementation structures, Africa has systemic mechanisms which will be enhanced to accelerate implementation of commitments specific to the food systems. The Africa Common Position on Food Systems implementation mechanism seeks to provide vertical and horizontal coherence as well as strong national ownership and drive of implementation. We look forward to all the partners to align and supportively work with the AUC and AUDA-NEPAD and RECs in this renewed undertaking.
