The overall objective of the ADFNS 2012 is to provide a platform that engages food and nutrition security stakeholders, government, civil society, the private sector, the scientific and research institutions, farmer organizations and development partners toward operationalising an African vision on food and nutrition security, taking into account global discussions and movements (G8, G20, Rio+20, SUN, 1000 days, etc.) and Africa’s strategic frameworks such as the Strategy for the Accelerated Industrial Development of Africa (AIDA), adopted by the African Summit in 2008, and the African Agri-business and Agro-Industry Initiative (3ADI), launched by African Heads of State and Government in Abuja in March 2010. In this regard the ADFNS strengthens momentum towards and contributes towards a reflection on Sustainable Development Goals and what could follow the MDGs after 2015, taking into account the UNDP Africa Human Development Report 2012: Toward a Food Secure Future.
