ABSTRACT

The African Union’s Agenda 2063 and the Malabo Declaration have called for the rapid transformation of Africa’s agrifood system. This ambitious agrifood system transformation agenda involves reconciling trade-offs across poverty reduction, food security, nutrition, and environmental goals.  The ReSAKSS 2020 Annual Trends and Outlook Report (ATOR) focuses on the policies required to transform African agrifood systems to meet their potential. Chapters provide (1) an in-depth review of the evolution of agricultural sector policies over the last five decades; (2) a systematic analysis of traditional input constraints on agricultural productivity; (3) a discussion of policies needed to bolster competitiveness along value chains; and of (4) institutional and political economy factors that shape the broader enabling environment needed for agrifood system transformation.
