Beating Famine Southern Africa Conference Declaration
May 21, 2015
The Southern Africa Beating Famine Conference was a unique opportunity for key individuals and organisations to come together and collaborate on the best ways to scale up practices which address food security in a changing climate. Over the course of our conference participants were able to learn about the current technologies, projects and innovations which are being used to tackle these pertinent issues. Participants were then able to use this knowledge to develop country and regional plans which detailed how land regeneration and food security goals would be met in their specific contexts. The culmination of these discussions, country plans and thematic sessions was the development of our Conference Declaration: a set of statements which highlight the key food security and climate change issues as seen by participants and our recommendations for addressing them.
