Africa Lead Final Year Learning Series

The objective of the Africa Lead II Final Year Learning Series is to educate Africa Lead’s partners about how the program’s work has evolved over the last six years. Through a series of webinars, in-person events and thought pieces the series will explore how the flexible program has allowed USAID and Feed the Future to respond to the rapidly changing African-led food security and resilience policy landscape.

Why does Africa’s Continental Food Security Policy Framework Matter to Smallholder Farmers Everywhere?
African-led Agriculture & Resilience.

Africa Lead is one of Feed the Future and USAID’s primary food security capacity building programs in sub Saharan Africa. Feed the Future (FTF) is the U.S. Government’s global hunger and food security initiative.

Institutional Architecture for Food Security & Resilience
Institutional architecture (IA) provides a framework for understanding and improving a country’s capacity to undertake transparent, inclusive and evidence-based policy change to improve food security and resilience. Africa Lead supports countries and stakeholders to advance the IA process through facilitation and tools.

Trainer Directory

Africa Lead has invested in building the capacity of experienced trainers/facilitators that are able to understand and facilitate discussions relating to agricultural transformation and have a proven track record in delivering capacity building training programs for multiple stakeholders within the agricultural sector.

In celebration of the 2019 International Women's Day, Africa Lead released a short video and blog post about the program's work to highlight the important roles women (and youth) play in African agriculture, through media activities. As part of the post Africa Lead released two impact evaluation reports about the media activities it supported; "Don't Lose the Plot" and "Kumekucha".
