The African Union (AU) – European Union (EU) partnership officially launched the Pan African Network for Economic Analysis of Policies (PANAP Network), to strengthen the cooperation of researchers and policy makers when designing policies to strengthen the stability of agriculture and food sectors in Africa.
On 6 November, the Pan-African Network for economic Analysis of Policies (PANAP) started its activities in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The network aims to discuss ways to support agriculture and food policies in Africa through scientific research and cooperation.
The Network will also help to increase the sustainability of the African agricultural and food sectors, leading to an increase in food and nutrition security in line with the Zero Hunger target of the Sustainable Development Goals and the commitment laid out in the Malabo Declaration to end hunger in Africa by 2025 and of the Sustainable Development Goals.
PANAP is part of the Action Agenda of the Political Declaration of the 3rd AU-EU Agriculture Ministerial Conference held in Rome on 21 June 2019 and is conceived in the framework of the Africa-Europe agenda for rural transformation – Task force rural Africa.
