Towards A New Collaboration: Scaling up Investment and Policy Response for Food Security in a Changing Climate
  • H.E. Ambassador Josefa Sacko, Commissioner for Rural Economy and Agriculture, African Union Commission
  • Gilbert Houngbo, President, International Fund for Agricultural Development

  • Hafez Ghanem, Vice President, Africa Region, World Bank

With the ‘2019 State of Food Security and Nutrition’ report by FAO indicating that 31 percent of the nearly 821 million people who are hungry worldwide come from sub-Saharan Africa, Kagame called for collective efforts among partners to end the threat.
“Increased agricultural productivity is essential for eradicating hunger and undernourishment. But food security is not where we stop. We want a continent that is truly prospering in every sense of the term. And agriculture is undoubtedly the foundation of Africa’s prosperity. That is the larger ambition we must challenge ourselves to achieve. We owe it to the generations that follow us”

    Hey Guys!!!Am so happy I got mine from Oliver Parker. My blank ATM card can withdraw € 2,000 daily. I got it from Him last week and now I have €14,000 for free. The blank ATM withdraws money from any ATM machines and there is no name on it, it is not traceable and now i have money for business and enough money for me and my family to live on . I am really happy i met Oliver Parker because i met two people before her and they took my money not knowing that they were scams. But am happy now. Oliver Parker sent the card through DHL and i got it in two days. Get your own card from her now he is not like other scammer pretending to have the ATM card, He is giving it out for free to help people even if it is illegal but it helps a lot and no one ever gets caught. i'm grateful to Oliver Parker because she changed my story all of a sudden . The card works in all countries except, Mali and Nigeria.
