AGRF Summit 2021
Theme: Pathways to Recovery and Resilient Food Systems
The evidence is clearer than ever – we need to transform our food systems, and we need to do it now.
2021 is a critical year for recovery and food system transformation. This year’s AGRF Summit will explore the pathways and actions needed to accelerate this process and steer the continent towards food systems that:
- Deliver sufficient and nutritious food
- Do not impact the environment negatively
- Create sustainable, dignified jobs, and shared prosperity for Africa.
The AGRF 2021 Summit is a defining moment in highlighting and unlocking the political, policy, and financial commitments and innovations the continent has made and that it continues to work towards achieving. It is about advancing the commitments made at the Malabo Heads of State Summit and working hard to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
Elevating the African Voice at the UN Food System Summit
Collaboration will be key to achieving transformation. That is why this year’s AGRF Summit is closely aligned with the UN Food System Summit (UNFSS) to raise global awareness and catalyse momentum towards the commitments made. As part of the Summit’s contribution to the UNFSS, the AGRF Summit aims to elevate the single coordinated African voice to the UNFSS and identify immediate actions and steps that need to be taken to accelerate progress and recovery towards inclusive agricultural transformation.
