THEME: Advancing Sustainable Food Systems for Healthy Diets and Improved Nutrition – Key for Harnessing Africa’s Demographic Dividend

The main purpose of the ADFNS is to serve as a platform for rallying political and financial commitments at all levels to address contemporary challenges of food and nutrition insecurity in Africa. The event provides the platform at national, regional and
continental levels to share experiences, knowledge and mutual learning, as well as measure progress in assuring food and nutrition security for all by governments and multi-stakeholder partners. 

After wide consultations, the theme for commemorating this year’s ADFNS and the Continental Symposium on Food Systems in Africa is on: 

Advancing Sustainable Food Systems for Healthy Diets and Improved
Nutrition: Key for Harnessing Africa’s Demographic Dividend 

Under this main theme four (4) sub-themes have been proposed to inform messages that must resonate to the public, as well as target audience, and guide technical preparations, development of issue papers, parallel sessions and various public information material as well as side events of the ADFNS and the Continental Symposium.
