Issues for Discussion

  • How can we spark a new movement to achieve nutrition security and reach the AFDB ‘High 5s’ #2 and #5, ‘Feed Africa’ & ‘Better Quality of life, and other global nutrition targets? 
  • What specifically can African leaders and regional organizations like the AfDB do to make nutrition investment a higher priority?
  • How can Africa leaders be supported to rethink how we look at nutrition, not just as a health and social development issue, but as an investment that shapes opportunity for economic growth?
  • How can we promote more collaboration among government organizations and leaders, philanthropists, businesses and civil society to achieve nutrition security?
  • How can economic data make the best case for prioritizing investments in nutrition?

Africa is simply tired of being in the dark. It is time to take decisive action and turn around this narrative: to light up and power Africa and accelerate the pace of economic transformation, unlock the potential of businesses, and drive much needed industrialization to create jobs.
