“Do more for Africa during your term”… President of the UN General Assembly urged.
The President of the UN General Assembly Mr Sam Kutesa has been requested to use his tenure to articulate more on the African owned initiatives such as NEPAD and APRM so that the narrative of Africa’s development can be more profound.
NEPAD CEO has told post graduate students of political affairs at Columbia University that that it is crucial that Africa’s priorities were well-accounted in the new SDGs which are set to replace the MDGs after the 2015 deadline.
Policy on Food Security often focuses on agricultural production by increasing staple produce such as cassava, rice and maize. These foods are high in energy but they lack the variety of nutrients essential for health and development.
The NEPAD Agency aims to ensure that up to 6 million farming households in Africa practice climate smart agriculture by 2021 by providing technical and capacity building support to farmers across the continent.
In recognition of their rich African heritage, NEPAD and APRM staff got together to showcase cultural diversity, language, history, beliefs and traditions - to promote internal cohesion and cross-cultural unity.
