Zero hunger in Africa by 2025: conditions for success
Date: 13 September 2016
Time: 10h00 - 13h00
Venue: Conference room, ISS Pretoria, Block C, Brooklyn Court, map

Eliminating hunger in Africa by 2025 is a massive undertaking. A new report by the NEPAD Agency and the Frederick S Pardee Center for International Futures analyses the ‘conditions for success’ if Africa is to achieve the target set by African Union in Agenda 2063 and the 2014 Malabo Declaration on agriculture transformation.

The study puts the magnitude of the task into perspective and highlights the major levers in policy, investment, technology as well as human and institutional capacity needed to sustain access to food.

This seminar is hosted jointly with the New Partnership for Africa’s Development Planning and Coordination Agency (NEPAD Agency) and the Pardee Center for International Futures. Copies of the report will be available at the seminar.

Chair: Dr Jakkie Cilliers, Head, African Futures and Innovation, ISS
