Summary

Most of Africa’s food is produced by smallholder farmers with the majority being women. Therefore, they are a leverage point for transforming agricultural practices and technologies to improve food and nutrition security under prevailing climatic, political, social and environmental conditions. Despite their significant role in ensuring food security,
these farmers are the most vulnerable to climate change and poverty with the women being exposed to additional gender inequalities and social exclusion. On the other hand, youth face untold challenges in their quest to venture into agriculture and food production.

Objective of dialogue

To discuss challenges and opportunities to ensure a sustainable food system in Africa and identify ways to strengthen women and youth empowerment.
