FAO’s interventions in Africa at regional, sub-regional and country level promote an integrated programme approach to food security and nutrition challenges and sustainable development.  We are informed by regional priorities and commitments, such as the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) and the Malabo declaration, while responding to FAO’s strategic objectives. 

The main areas of focus are showcased through three Regional Initiatives, namely:  supporting Africa’s commitment to end hunger by 2025; promoting sustainable production intensification and value chain development; and, building resilience in Africa’s drylands.  The cross-cutting issues of climate change, nutrition, gender, and governance are integral to our work, as is working in partnerships.
