Australia and Canada commit CA$20m to African food security

Funding agencies from Australia and Canada have put up CA$20 million for the second phase of a fund to boost food security in East and Southern Africa.

The Cultivate Africa’s Future fund is a collaboration between Canada’s International Development Research Centre and the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research. The second phase of the programme was launched in Kenya on 30 June.

The first phase funded nutrition and agribusiness projects for smallholder farmers in Kenya, Malawi, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Projects included using insects for poultry and fish feed and communicating research results to African farmers.
