Discussions also tackled the organization of the 33rd session of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Regional Conference for Africa in Morocco, which aims to share experiences, explore innovative solutions and build strong partnerships for more efficient and resilient agri-food systems.
