In 2015, all 54 African countries signed the Paris Agreement to mark their commitment to global climate change actions and have been actively strategizing a path forward, including through the Agenda 2063 vision. Climate change is a leading priority for Africa, with impacts on agriculture and food security across the continent. Other factors, including the worsening food security crisis sparked by the COVID-19 pandemic and catalyzed by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, continue to pose challenges for families and communities as they endure shortages and a lack of affordable food access.
