Draft Concept Note: Commemoration of the 8th Africa Day for Food and Nutrition Security with Continental Symposium on Food Systems


The Malabo Declaration, the African Union Agenda 2063; “the Africa we want”, the Africa Regional Nutrition Strategy (ARNS) and the Africa Renewed Initiative on Stunting Elimination (ARISE) have been geared towards meeting the continental commitment as well as global nutrition commitments on nutrition as stipulated in the ICN-2, SDGs and N4G and the World Health Assembly Nutrition Targets. Africa is
making progress in reducing undernutrition with significant effort required to meet targets for all forms of malnutrition. Significant momentum has been galvanized on multi-sectoral engagement for nutrition in Africa and most countries have adhered to the Scaling Up Nutrition Movement.
