How to Attain the SDGs within Planetary Boundaries with Focus on Agriculture and Food Systems
30 - 31 October 2018
Park Inn by Radisson
The Sustainable Development Goals Center for Africa (SDGC/A) in partnership with the Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC) hosted the 2nd African Dialogue on the World in 2050 (TWI 2050) from 30 – 31 October 2018 at the Park Inn by Radisson in Kigali, Rwanda. During the workshop, participants from policy makers, business leaders, academicians, researchers and representatives from farmer organizations and civil society identified African regional pathways that enrich the global Sustainable Development Pathways and support of the implementation of Agenda 2030.
Following the 1st multi-actor African Dialogue on TWI2050 held in August 2017 in Kigali, Rwanda brought together a wide range and diverse group of African stakeholders to explore sustainable development pathways and add the continent’s perspectives. Based on the positive outcomes from the 1st African Dialogue, the SDGC/A and SRC, found it necessary to organize a 2nd African Dialogue with the theme How to Attain the SDGs within Planetary Boundaries with Focus on Agriculture and Food Systems.
The opening ceremony of the workshop was officiated by Dr. Belay Begashaw, Director General of the SDGC/A; Dr. David Phiri, Sub-regional Coordinator for Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Eastern Africa and FAO Representative to the African Union and United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, and the keynote address delivered by Ms. Fatina Mukarubibi, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Rwanda.
