Africa Day for Food and Nutrition

30 October 2019

The economy of many African countries totally depend on agriculture, but many people have nothing to eat and starve to death. Annual observation of Africa Day of Food and Nutrition Security on October 30 attracts public attention to this problem.

The main objective of many African states is to reduce poverty, eradicate food insecurity and severe under nutrition. Regarding this, African Union heads of states gathered in July 2003 in Maputo, Mozambique to proclaim and sign the Declaration on the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Program.
