Speech: Initiative for Food and Nutrition Security in Africa (IFNA): 1st Partners Meeting

I am very delighted that today, we are witnessing the 1st Initiative of Food and Nutrition security in Africa (IFNA) Partners Meeting following its launch in the margins of the TICAD VI in Nairobi in August last year. It is a remarkable “coming to life” of an important initiative which related to the issues central to Africa’s efforts to attain sustainable economic growth and inclusive and dignified livelihoods for all. It is no wonder that this important milestone has to take place here in Addis Ababa, the seat for the African Union Commission.
