The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the African Union Commission's Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, Blue Economy and Sustainable Development (AUC-DARBE) have launched a guide to boosting intra-African agricultural trade under the new African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) agreement.
The AfCFTA began trading on 1 January 2021 and is the largest free trade area in the world in terms of the number of countries covered. It represents a market of 1.2 billion consumers.
The African continent is fast on its way to becoming one of the world's largest urban hubs. This has spawned growing interest in African urbanisation by both researchers and policymakers. But a great deal of the knowledge - and policy that stems from it - doesn't adequately respond to the challenges faced by those who govern and are governed on the ground.BySylvia Croese and Ntombini Marrengane
