About the product

The publication focuses on the specific situations of food insecurity in Africa. It aims at stimulating debate with the UN system and among development partners and national government counterparts. Its main message is that democratic processes, public reform, fiscal measures and economic growth can be sustainable only if they do secure the livelihoods of millions of poor people, particularly in terms of reducing their vulnerability to food crises.
