A healthy diet of fresh vegetables, proteins and fruit is a key ingredient for eliminating hunger and all forms of malnutrition and achieving Sustainable Development Goal 2, Zero Hunger by 2030. Unfortunately, a healthy diet has become an unaffordable luxury for close to 1 billion Africans, according to The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2020 report.  Globally, the cost of a healthy diet is above the international poverty line, meaning that people earning less than US$1.90 per day cannot afford to eat adequate calories and nutrients from diverse food groups. Compared to other regions, this affordability crisis poses the greatest challenge in Africa.

Ultimately, it has meant some households are facing increased difficulties in accessing nutritious foods. That’s not all. At the height of the pandemic, movement restrictions meant...

L'Organisation des Nations unies pour l'alimentation et l'agriculture (FAO) et la Commission de l'Union africaine (CUA) ont mené ensemble une initiative majeure de collecte et d'analyse de données sur l'utilisation des terres entre 2018 et 2020. Avec le soutien de l'Agence panafricaine de la Grande Muraille Verte (GMV), de la Communauté de développement de l'Afrique australe (SADC) et de 30 pays africains, la FAO et la CUA ont coordonné cette opération de collecte de données à une échelle inédite dans les domaines de l'agriculture, de l'environnement et de l'utilisation des terres. L'initiative Africa Open D.E.A.L (Data for Environment, Agriculture and Land) fait de l'Afrique le premier continent à achever la collecte de données numériques précises, complètes et harmonisées sur l'utilisation et les changements d'affectation des terres.   Elle fournit un instantané détaillé du continent, saisi grâce à plus de 300 000 points d'échantillonnage collectés par 350 opérateurs en deux ans.  Les analystes ont...

The Digital Innovation Strategy (DIS) of the Regional Office for Africa (RAF) of FAO has been prepared to respond to critical challenges facing inclusive and sustainable agrifood system transformation in sub-Saharan Africa. It is enshrined in the new Strategic framework 2022–2030 that aims to accelerate the "transformation to more efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agri-food systems for better production, better nutrition, a better environment and a better life, leaving no one behind".   A stronger infusion of digital technologies across operations and programmes of FAO RAF is vital for the region to successfully implement the Africa Regional Initiatives, RAF's Programmes Priority Areas (PPA) and support countries to achieve the AU Malabo Commitments and SDGs. The Strategy evolves around three strategic pillars which seek to: Improve use of quality data for country planning (Insight). Develop internal digital agriculture capacity to effectively support food systems transformation (Interact). Support inclusive national and regional digital agriculture ecosystems (Impact).
