Rabat Hosts 33rd FAO Regional Conference for Africa

Held under the auspices of the Kingdom of Morocco, the three-day conference offers a major opportunity for African countries to discuss practical and concrete solutions for food security and improved agricultural production, and to define priorities with the FAO for the next two years, with the aim of achieving transformative and sustainable change in agri-food systems across the continent.

Themed “Resilient agri-food systems and inclusive rural transformation”, the conference will also enable members and other stakeholders to share best practices, explore partnerships, discuss opportunities, as well as provide regional guidance on transforming agri-food systems in Africa.

This major conference features ministerial roundtables, the launch of new FAO publications and special events on a number of topics, such as stimulating public and private sector investment through the financing of resilient agrifood systems, blue transformation in Africa and the potential of aquatic foods, in addition to the drivers and triggers for the transformation of agrifood systems in Africa.

The 33rd session of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Regional Conference for Africa (ARC33) kicked off on Thursday in Rabat, under the chairmanship of Head of Government, Aziz Akhannouch.
