Live tweet-up: Building a Food-Secure Future in the Horn of Africa

FAO experts respond to questions on the Horn of Africa, live on Twitter

On Wednesday 24 August FAO held a live tweet-up discussion on how farmers and pastoralists in the Horn of Africa have been affected by drought, and what needs to be done to help the region strengthen its agricultural sector in order to better weather shocks like drought and grow more food locally.

FAO Chief of Emergency Operations Cristina Amaral and Food Security Analyst Ahmed Shukri responded to your questions live via our @FAOnews account, using the hashtag #HoAdev.

This was FAO's first live Twitter discussion. We learned a lot and are looking forward to the next one. Thanks for your support, ideas, and participation.
