This report highlights the pervasive and persistent hunger problem in Africa, in the context of favorable agricultural conditions and climate, and growing economies. The report then argues for action in four main areas to sustainably and equitably address the hunger problem. These are:

  • Agricultural productivity
  • Nutrition
  • Access to food
  • Empowerment of the rural poor

The Africa Human Development Report 2012: Towards a Food Secure Future was launched on May 15, 2015, and more information about the launch event is available on the UNDP website.
