Agriculture remains the primary sector in Africa, offering significant opportunities to ease food insecurity and poverty, while generating widespread economic benefits. However, the sector is vulnerable to a variety of shocks – including climate risks, volatility in both input and output prices, financial uncertainties, migration, pandemics, conflicts and global geopolitical tensions. These crises continuously hindered efforts to achieve sustained agricultural growth and food and nutrition security in Africa.

Strong from their longtime strategical partnership supporting African member states towards adopting a holistic approach to agricultural risk management, PARM (hosted by IFAD) and the African Union Development Agency of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (AUDA-NEPAD), will co-organize a webinar exploring ways to accelerate investments for sustainable food systems through inclusive and holistic agricultural risk management in Africa. Leading experts will share some of their practical experiences and lessons learned in building resilience in the agricultural sector and de-risking investments in food systems. They will also explore joint opportunities to coordinate actions between relevant stakeholders and scale up existing initiatives across the African continent.
