AGIR - Experts Group Meeting


AGIR experts group

Some 50 key stakeholders of the AGIR Sahel-West Africa initiative gathered at an experts group meeting on 7 and 8 November 2012 in Paris in order to discuss the content of a draft roadmap for the implementation of AGIR. There was a general consensus that AGIR should be developed within existing regional frameworks and help support the implementation of the regional food and nutritional security agenda. Based on a time horizon of 15 years, the objective is to reduce the total population of facing structural food and nutritional insecurity by at least two-thirds and to lower the rate of acute malnutrition to below 10% in the target countries. Further discussion will take place on specific strategic objectives, priority actions and target populations.
