Policy Brief: African Civil Society Assessment of the UNFSS National Pathways

A broad range of African POs and CSOs have denounced the corporate capture of their food systems and are advocating for their real solutions to food crises. This policy brief is rooted in a process that began before the 2021 UNFSS summit and has produced two widely shared statements: (1) The African PO/CSO response to the UNFSS, and (2) The African popular consultation declaration. These POs and CSOs – acting in what is known as the African CSIPM Popular Consultation Space – have mandated the research, whose initial findings are reported here.
