South-North Dialogue to help achieve SDG 2 and 13 in Africa: An Agricultural Revolution for Sustainable Food Security

Addressing inequalities and accelerating SDGs

The Covid-19 epidemic and the war in Ukraine have exacerbated structural trends: food insecurity is set to increase due to rising demographics and declining crop yields caused by climate change. The challenge of the century will be to produce more while decarbonizing. Faced with this situation, Africa has immense agricultural potential. It can feed its population with a model adapted to climate change. This roundtable, in line with the Summit for a New Global Financial Pact, will attempt to show that it is possible for Africa to reconcile the agendas of combating global warming and protecting biodiversity on the one hand, and agricultural development to achieve food security on the other.
