A Review of The African Union Decade of Youth Development - Sithembile Mwa

 Agriculture should form the backbone to any solution or strategy to the developmental challenges bedeviling the continent. It will be impossible to effectively advance social and economic transformation that addresses the challenges confronted by women, the youth and children on the continent without collective efforts targeted at transforming agriculture in Africa, in a way that addresses food and nutrition insecurity. The Malabo declaration on accelerated agricultural growth and transformation for shared prosperity and improved livelihoods provides the direction. The 2018 High-level Food and Nutrition Security Policy Dialogue for Africa was a collaborative effort of four organizations - the Food, Agriculture and Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN), the Graça Machel Trust (GMT), the Mandela Institute or Development Studies (MINDS), and Center for Coordination of Agricultural Research and Development for Southern Africa (CCARDESA) together with local, regional and global partners – engaged in transformative and sustainable agenda aimed at ensuring a food and nutrition secure African continent based on active and meaningful engagement of women and the youth.
