Food security in Africa

28 November 2022

On 28 November, the EUISS and the Africa Working Party of the Council of the EU (COAFR) held the 19th session of the EUISS-COAFR meetings to discuss the future of food security in Africa.

Dr Ben Leyka, from the African Agri Council (AAC), presented the findings of the recently published EUISS policy brief “The Future of African Food Security: Becoming the world’s breadbasket – or not”. This presentation offered insights and recommendations on how to build resilient food systems in the African continent, reducing vulnerability to shocks in the context of global power competition, by investing in skilled labour and human capital development.

Following Ben Leyka’s intervention, participants exchanged views on the implications for Africa-EU cooperation.

The EUISS-COAFR meetings are moderated by Senior Analyst Giovanni Faleg.
