RPCA

For the second consecutive year, the region must prepare for a major food and nutrition crisis in 2021. The March update indicates that 27.1 million people might need emergency food and nutrition assistance in June-August 2021, if appropriate measures are not taken. Via videoconference, some 200 RPCA members examined the final results of the 2020-21 agro-pastoral campaign and validated key findings of the Cadre harmonisé analysis on the food and nutrition situation. They also discussed the theme for the 37th RPCA annual meeting and the third PREGEC Charter evaluation, as well as preparatory work underway for the United Nations Food Systems Summit scheduled for September. The 37th RPCA annual meeting will be held on 6-7 December 2021 with the general theme, “Women, conflict and food and nutrition issues.”
