Dakar 2 Summit “Feeding Africa: food sovereignty and resilience”
The Dakar 2 Summit was held from 25 to 27 January in Senegal and brought together several dozen dignitaries, heads of state and government, and development partners invited by the African Development Bank and the Senegalese government. The summit's main objective was to unlock Africa's food potential by mobilising and bringing coherence to private sector financing, government resources and development partners. Worldwide, 828 million people suffer from hunger, and 249 million are in Africa. To achieve Sustainable Development Goal 2 of zero hunger, the goal should be first met in the continent.
