Synopsis

In this issue we chose to commemorate both the 1 Year Anniversary of the 1st Africa Food Security and Adaptation Conference and the African Union’s Year
of Agriculture and Food Security by dedicating an entire issue to tracking the progress of regional efforts to integrate climate change adaptation into Food Security considerations.

At the 22nd African Union Summit (Jan 21-31 2014), the member countries officially declared 2014 the Year of Agriculture and Food Security in Africa, under the theme “Transforming Africa’s agriculture for shared prosperity and improved livelihoods; Harnessing opportunities for inclusive growth and sustainable development.”
