Abstract
This document summarizes the online discussion “The 11th WTO Ministerial Conference (MC11) and its significance for food security in Africa”, held on the FAO Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition in Africa (FSN Forum Africa) from 20 November to 8 December 2017. African governments have committed to boosting intra-African trade in agricultural commodities and services. Trade has been recognized as one of the means for achieving the SDGs, especially SDG2. However, cross-border trade is also implicated in exposing vulnerable small-scale actors to greater competition and undermining food availability and food access in low-income countries under certain conditions.
