Africa can be a major sustainable agricultural power

ATLAS is a high level multi-stakeholder platform for North-South policy dialogue and cooperation to unlock the full potential of African agriculture, following the Paris Peace Forum’s call to action.

With a permanent secretariat hosted by the Paris Peace Forum and regular events, ATLAS labels projects in line with the sustainable intensification of African agricultural systems, monitors the progress, impact, and effectiveness of initiatives, helping inform future actions.

The Call For Mobilization

We, international organizations, developments banks, businesses, financial institutions, research centers, philanthropic foundations and civil society organizations, meeting on November 10 and 11, 2023 at the Paris Peace Forum, call for mobilization for Africa's agricultural development. Africa has the potential to become a major agricultural power by 2050. A transformation of its agricultural systems is needed, not only to increase production, but also enabling sustainable and equitable food systems that generate wealth for small producers and agricultural workers, women, and youth, prioritize access to nutritious food, environmental sustainability, and resilience.
