The Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) has recently decided to partner with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), World Food Programme (WFP) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), to fight the issue of food insecurity in Africa.

Executive Secretary of ECA, Ms. Vera Songwe, confirmed this decision stating that the ECA will do all it takes to collaborate with the other organization to achieve a tangible result on their agenda.

Ms. Vera Songwe, in a statement copied to the Ghana News Agency, gave the assurance that the ECA was ready to deepen its collaboration with the three organizations.

“Under one roof we have combined knowledge on climate change, food security, and conflict. These issues are relevant for the challenges we face such as migration and must be tackled in a comprehensive way,”

“We have been collaborating already with the three agencies and there’s a lot that can be done if we pull our resources together.”
