Embracing the socio-economic, agricultural, and cultural diversity of the African region, FAO has established three Regional Initiatives (RI), unique to the African region, to ensure effective delivery and demonstrate impact of FAO’s work on the key regional priorities, while responding to FAO’s Strategic Objectives.
The Three Regional Initiatives call to:
Accelerate action by countries in the fight against hunger (Africa’s Commitment to End Hunger by 2025)
Promote inclusive, sustainable, innovative production and post-production practices (Sustainable Production Intensification and Value Chain Development in Africa), and
Strengthen resilience among vulnerable farming and pastoral communities (Building Resilience in Africa’s Drylands).
The three Regional Initiatives were developed based on an in-depth cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary review of regional issues and trends, as well as alignment with regional commitments, such as the African Union’s Malabo Declaration adopted in 2014, which includes committing to ending hunger by 2025, pursuing inclusive agricultural transformation agenda to reduce poverty, and enhancing resilience of livelihoods and production systems. The three Regional Initiatives are also linked with FAO’s Global Strategic Objective Programmes, each corresponding to different objectives. Strategic Objective Programme 3, which aims to reduce rural poverty, cross cuts all the Regional Initiatives. The graph below presents how the Regional Initiatives and Strategic Objective Programmes co-relate to each other.
