Annual regional policy dialogues

FANRPAN annual regional policy dialogues

The FANRPAN Annual High Level Regional Food Security Policy Dialogues are hosted on a rotational basis amongst the FANRPAN member countries, determined by the FANRPAN Annual General Meeting which nominates a host country and identifies a theme for the year. The policy dialogues, with an estimated attendance of over 200 participants in recent years, provides an opportunity for FANR stakeholders including, governments; policy research institutions; universities; farmers organisations; private sector; media and civil society to share best practices; lessons and experiences on a particular theme and come up with tangible resolutions. The policy dialogues also showcase best practices from Africa and beyond in line with FANRPAN's five thematic thrusts:

  1. Food Systems
  2. Agriculture Productivity and Markets
  3. Natural Resources and Environment
  4. Social Protection and Livelihoods
  5. Institutional Strengthening
