Africa Lead Learning Event

Africa Leading on Agriculture

The capstone event in Africa Lead's Final Program Year Learning Series, brought together key African leaders, non-state actors, governments, and the private sector to reflect on six years of programming advancing food security and resilience policy efforts across Africa.

Why does Africa’s Continental Food Security Policy Framework Matter to Smallholder Farmers Everywhere?
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.

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".
