At the up-coming EU-AU Summit, nutrition must be prioritised as a key lever of sustainable development, in line with existing priorities of the African Union. To make progress towards Sustainable Development Goals, and ensure a sustainable partnership between the continents, it is essential to improve food and nutrition security in Africa. Therefore, Generation Nutrition calls on European and African leaders to: 

  • Eradicating hunger in all its forms should be a priority in the statement “Europe and Africa: two continents with a joint vision for 2030”, as a prerequisite to deliver on the other EU-AU partnership’s priorities and reach the SDGs.
  • The Africa-Europe investment package should support the transformation of food systems to make them sustainable, resilient, diversified and fair.
  • The prevention and treatment of malnutrition should be a priority of the health and social protection initiative.
  • Civil society organisations should be meaningfully included in the summit and in the implementation of the partnership.
