Annual FANRPAN awards

We at FANRPAN are convinced that Africa is neither poor nor incapable of feeding itself, but that it lacks the fresh initiatives which empower, encourage and support policies to promote food security, climate smart agriculture and poverty alleviation. We strongly believe that formal recognition is an incentive for individual and organizational efficiency and , more can be achieved if visionary people and organizations in Africa receive tangible support to realize their dreams of a food secure Africa.
Since 2008 FANRPAN has seen fit to reward excellence in Food Security Policy.
