Nutrition and Food Security Dialogue Series
Dialogue 2: “The Role of Trade & Food Safety in Advancing Nutrition & Food Security Objectives & the Need for Policy Alignment”

In support of the African Union’s (AU) 2022 Year of Nutrition, AKADEMIYA2063 and the Senegalese National Council for Nutrition Development (CNDN) will organize a series of dialogues on nutrition and food security with a wide group of stakeholders, to facilitate knowledge exchange, mutual learning, and drive required action toward achieving continental and global food security and nutrition targets.

Specific objectives of the series will highlight:

1. Africa’s progress, challenges, successes, and opportunities in achieving nutrition outcomes and targets;
2. Critical and emerging areas that need to be addressed in order to effectively improve dietary quality and nutritional outcomes on the African continent; and
3. Potential solutions to challenges and required policies and investments to accelerate and sustain the achievement of nutritional goals in Africa.

This second dialogue, organized in partnership with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), will delve into the nexus between trade, nutrition, food safety and food security. It will examine Africa's sanitary and phytosanitary – SPS-related challenges and share lessons learned and best practices in strengthening Africa's SPS systems to promote trade, nutrition, and food safety and security. Participants will also reflect on how best to use trade and food safety policies as instruments to improve nutritional and dietary quality. The discussion will also note efforts to advance trade and food safety under existing frameworks such as the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), the African Union (AU) SPS Policy Framework, and the AU Food Safety Strategy.
