Morocco has been selected to host the next meeting of the FAO regional conference for Africa in 2024. The decision was made during the 32nd Session of the FAO Regional Conference convening in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, April 11-14.
The regional conference is FAO’s highest governing body in Africa. The Malabo meeting is held as a hybrid event, with African government officials attending in person or remotely via videoconferencing due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Participants are discussing FAO’s new strategic framework which aims to help African countries achieve a better production, nutrition, environment and better living conditions, leaving no one behind.
The agenda also includes debates on ways to mitigate covid-19 impacts on the agri-food sector, the prevention against future pandemics, investment in agricultural products across Africa and the inclusion of women, youth and the poor people in agri-food transformation.
Participating countries will share best practices, explore partnerships and opportunities for innovation and digital technologies to help improve food security and address other challenges in the region.
