Addressing Food Security, Food Waste & Nutritional Food Challenges
“Being food secure means having enough nutritious food for a healthy and active life”
Agriculture in Africa has a massive economic and social footprint. More than 60 percent of the population of the sub-Saharan Africa is smallholder farmers, and about 23 percent of sub-Saharan Africa’s GDP comes from agriculture. Yet, the region’s full agricultural potential remains untapped.
Recognizing this opportunity, SAIMS has chosen Agriculture to be the pillar in its contribution towards food security, international trade and investments, major continental priorities such as eradicating poverty and hunger, developing and boosting economic development, rapid industrialization especially in most rural areas & economic diversification, sustainable resource and environmental management, creating jobs for women and youth and shared prosperity.
