To highlight the national pathways and partner actions, AGRA and the AGRF hosted “Delivering on the African Agenda in Building Resilient Food Systems” a side event ahead of the UN Food Systems Summit. It will address African challenges and solutions in the transition to resilient food systems. Following the declaration (https://agrf.org/summit#summit-declaration) of the AGRF, it will consider what must be done to turn political ambition into reality.
The president of AGRA (Africa Green Revolution Agenda) Dr. Agnes Kalibata joined CNBC Africa to talk about the impact of the pandemic on the agricultural value chain, and the need for greater food reserves to face unexpected challenges of the future. She asserted the need to tailor finance and skill services as per the need of women in the agriculture sector as well as what the AGRF 2021 Summit would take to the UNFSS this year.
