Combatting Hunger

The Kofi Annan Foundation at the 2018 African Economic Conference

The Kofi Annan Foundation and the African Development Bank are co-hosting a dialogue on Intra-African Food Market Integration: Challenges and Policy Options at the African Economic Conference in Kigali, Rwanda.

Agricultural trade is an important engine for Africa’s economic growth and shared prosperity. It has the potential to foster economic development and job creation, catalyse investments, and help Africa feed itself and the world. African countries have every reason to promote regional food market integration.

This important event will start with a brief presentation of the preliminary findings of the report Intra-African Food Market Integration: Challenges and Policy Options, commissioned by the African Development Bank and the Kofi Annan Foundation.
