Africa-Europe Alliance: European Commission committed to a sustainable African agri-food sector | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

European Commission - Press Release 07/03/2019 -  The Task Force for Rural Africa delivered today its final report, an agri-food and rural agenda for the new ‘Africa-Europe Alliance for Sustainable Investment and Jobs' unveiled by President Jean-Claude in the 2018 State of the Union.

According to the recommendations of this group of African and European experts, Africa and the EU should develop a partnership operating at three levels: people to people, business to business, and government to government. It would institute a multi-stakeholder dialogue at all levels, starting locally, and enable a closer connection between African and European societies, business communities and governments.

Launched in May 2018 by the European Commission, the Task Force was set up to provide advice on strengthening the Africa-Europe partnership in food and farming.

Building on some of the short term recommendations made by the Task Force, the European Commission will start implementing the following projects:

  • Twinning and exchange programmes between African and European agricultural bodies;
  • AU-EU Agribusiness platform;
  • Innovation hubs.

Dans une étude prospective à horizon 2040, parue dans la revue Science of the Total Environment en mai 2018, trois chercheurs (UMR Metis – Sorbonne Université-CNRS-EPHE) présentent deux visions contrastées des évolutions du système agroalimentaire français, en prenant en compte 33 régions agricoles.

Les deux scénarios ont été quantifiés avec la méthode GRAFS (Generalized Representation of Agro-Food Systems), qui bâtit une image complète des flux d'azote, de phosphore et de carbone, sur la base des données des 33 régions étudiées, et permet d'approcher les grandes caractéristiques des productions agricoles.
