Agriculture and Food Insecurity Risk Management
Managing agriculture and food insecurity risks is critical to ensuring inclusive growth and greater resilience for Africa’s economic development and transformation. It requires mainstreaming agricultural and food insecurity risk management in policy documents and translating the policies into holistic action plans which are designed and implemented by national and local governments farmers’ organisations and other national stakeholders. The AFIRM programme will contribute to this by ensuring that specific investments in physical infrastructure, institutional infrastructure and capacity development leverage and reinforce a combination of effective risk management tools and policy instruments. Investments by other donors should be similarly aligned to this focus.
