Stepped up and concerted actions are needed in Africa if the Sustainable Development Goal of Zero Hunger and the more ambitious Malabo hunger target are to be met. The Malabo Declaration, adopted by African Union member states in 2014, calls for the intensification of collective efforts towards the eradication of hunger and malnutrition by 2025.
The Sustainable Development Goals, adopted globally in 2015, aims to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture by 2030. According to FAO and other institutions, evidence shows the African continent is not on track to meet these commitments. Fiona Mbabazi caught up with the President of Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa( AGRA) Dr. Agnes Kalibata and this is what she had to say on the matter.
