In the Malabo Declaration on Accelerated Agricultural Growth and Transformation for Shared Prosperity and Improved Livelihoods adopted in 2014, Heads of State and Government of the African Union agreed on a remarkable set of concrete agriculture goals to be attained by 2025. The Malabo Summit reconfirmed that agriculture should remain high on the development agenda of the continent, and is a critical policy initiative for African economic growth and poverty reduction. With 2025 approaching, it is now time to look beyond the Malabo Declaration to chart a way forward for African food and agriculture systems. To this end, this high-level panel will discuss progress made to date in achieving the Malabo Declaration’s goals and identify priorities for future action.
