Agenda 2063 is Africa’s development blueprint to achieve inclusive and sustainable socio-economic development over a 50-year period. The continent aims to achieve this objective through the realisation of five ten-year implementation plans.
The current situation in terms of hunger and malnutrition in Africa is totally incompatible with the vision of the African Union (AU) and the aspirations for the peoples of Africa as held by their leaders. It is indeed, an irony of the tallest order that Africa is presently having the highest levels of malnutrition in the world as it is a continent with exceptional natural resources and experiencing rapid economic growth.
Over the past few years, the increase in global food prices, followed by the economic and financial crisis, have pushed more people into poverty, vulnerability and hunger. Even though the number of undernourished people has fallen globally by 13.2 percent from 1 billion to 868 million in the last 20 years Africa’s share in the world’s undernourished population has decreased from 35.5 percent in 1990 to 22 percent in 2019.
The Africa Governance Report 2021 (AGR 2021) is the second report produced by the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM), on behalf of the African Governance Architecture (AGA), and focuses on African Governance Futures 2063 Scenarios. By utilising future studies as its scientific platform, this report represents a collective effort that highlights rigorous, evidence-based research spanning a period of one year.
