The U.S. Government Global Food Security Research Strategy is based on input from the Board for International Food and Agricultural Development (BIFAD) along with feedback from U.S. university researchers and a diverse set of other U.S. and international stakeholders about what worked well under the preceding 2011–2016 Feed the Future Research Strategy and what should be adjusted to respond to emerging opportunities, constraints, priorities and best practices over the coming years.
The strategy details the roles of key U.S. and international partners in designing, supporting, implementing and scaling research outputs in order to support improved coordination across U.S. agencies and partners.
Urbanization and Industrialization for Africa’s Transformation is a report by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa.
The report identifies and analyzes the drivers, enablers and policy levers for strengthening linkages between industrialization and urbanization. It shows that industrialization requires better functioning cities and systems of cities, which in turn require better performing industrialization processes.
It stresses that African countries, under the right policy frameworks anchored in national development planning, can leverage the momentum of urbanization to accelerate industrialization for a more prosperous and equitable future.
