Africa agriculture status report 2022: accelerating African food systems transformation

This year’s Africa Agriculture Status Report (AASR) focuses on accelerating African food systems. This theme plays a critical role in not only shaping human diets and health outcomes but in also ensuring the sustainability of the environment in which food is produced, processed, distributed, sold, and consumed. Food systems support the livelihoods of people who depend on these activities and they are an important driver of economic development and stability. As a result, the 2022 AASR has involved an unusually broad range of disciplinary specialties and institutional contributors.
