The following text presents the recommendations by African and European civil society organizations regarding the implementation of the Ministerial Declaration and Action Agenda adopted on 21 June 2019.
The African and European CSO representatives welcome many aspects of the Declaration developed in the 3rd AU-EU Agriculture Ministerial Conference of 21 June 2019 (Rome). The commitment to fully implement the normative guidelines adopted by the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) can help to ensure that the AU-EU cooperation leads to positive transformative changes in the food and agricultural sectors. They also value the Declaration’s stated intention to target actions to benefit family farmers, youth and women, and its acknowledgement of territorial food systems, agroecology and agroforestry as valid approaches to fulfill the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement, to create added value in agri-food chains, and to fight poverty and hunger.
