African Action for Zero Hunger: FSNet-Africa launches World Food Day Campaign

The Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) is partnering with the University of Pretoria (UP) and the University of Leeds (UoL) with support from the Global Food and Environment Institute (GFEI) to host a ARUA-UKRI GCRF Food Systems Research Network for Africa (FSNet-Africa) virtual campaign leading up to the World Food Day on 16 October 2020. The World Food Day is celebrated to commemorate the establishment of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), with the general focus being on food security, nutrition, and agricultural transformation.


Under the theme “African Action for Zero Hunger”, our campaign will focus on food system policy choices to achieve SDG2 in Africa. The campaign will comprise four components: a series of policy-focused vlogs (short, pre-recorded video messages accompanied by a written blog) to be published in the two weeks leading up to World Food Day (i.e., from 1 October to 15 October), written opinion pieces that will be published in popular scientific media, a webinar to be held on World Food Day (16 October), and a policy brief that synthesises the policy recommendations highlighted in the vlogs and opinion pieces.
