KIGALI, RWANDA, 18 November 2021/ — AKADEMIYA2063 (AKADEMIYA2063.org), in partnership with the African Union Commission (AUC), is convening a virtual 2021 ReSAKSS (https://bit.ly/3cfToZO) Annual Conference to promote review and dialogue on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on African food systems and policy options to ensure recovery and strengthen resilience to future shocks.
The COVID-19 pandemic has posed unprecedented challenges to health, economic and agrifood systems around the globe. In addition to the direct health effects of the pandemic and its cost in terms of human life, the crisis has caused serious disruptions to economies and food systems, pushing millions of people into poverty and food insecurity. Africa entered the crisis already facing high poverty and hunger rates and high vulnerability due to relatively weak health system capacity and high exposure to world trade fluctuations.
The 2021 ReSAKSS Annual Conference will bring together state and non-state actors to deliberate on the key findings and policy recommendations of the ReSAKSS 2021 ATOR.

Established in 2006 under the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP), the Regional Strategic Analysis and Knowledge Support System (ReSAKSS) (https://bit.ly/3cfToZO) supports efforts to promote evidence and outcome-based policy planning and implementation. In particular, ReSAKSS provides data and related analytical and knowledge products to facilitate CAADP benchmarking, review, and mutual accountability processes.

AKADEMIYA2063 (AKADEMIYA2063.org) leads the work of ReSAKSS in partnership with the African Union Commission (AUC), the African Union Development Agency (AUDA- NEPAD), and leading Regional Economic Communities (RECs). The mission of AKADEMIYA2063 is to provide data, policy analysis, and capacity-strengthening support to enable African Union (AU) Member States to achieve economic transformation and shared prosperity in support of the AU’s Agenda 2063.

As the main platform for monitoring CAADP implementation, ReSAKSS tracks the progress of core CAADP indicators through an interactive website and a flagship Annual Trends and Outlook Report (ATOR), the official CAADP monitoring and evaluation (M&E) report. In addition to tracking progress on CAADP core indicators, the ATOR presents analysis on a feature topic of strategic importance to the CAADP agenda each year.
