The outcome document from this event is now available: Towards an Outcome-oriented Food & Agricultural Aid and Development System: What is needed to achieve SDG 2.3 and 2.4?
This two and a half day meeting, co-facilitated by ECDPM and Chatham House (at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center), brought together leading experts and stakeholders to discuss how the system of global institutions that provide global food and agricultural aid and finance, global public goods, and technical assistance to low-income countries can be better aligned to support the realization of SDG2 in the context of these countries’ own efforts (with a focus on SDGs 2.3 and 2.4). This is meant to be only the first step of a future research and dialogue process in support of SDG2 efforts and the global food & agriculture institutions. Given SDG2 is more seriously behind in Africa, and such global institutions and donors concentrate their efforts in Africa, we hope this project could have a strong impact also on the effectiveness of EU-Africa cooperation for food security and sustainable food systems.
ECDPM’s Francesco Rampa wrote a background paper on this topic and was involved as expert and facilitator during this co-organised event.
