International project funded by FACCE-JPI and the Belmont forum builds community to meet future food challenges


The role of private companies and other institutions is of growing importance in food security and land use issues. These include major ‘up-stream’ actors in the food system, including those engaged in food processing, marketing, intraregional trading, and the food aid sectors. All are ultimately influenced by consumers, and therefore largely controlling demand. The SAFGOV project aims to improve the Southern African food system activities and enterprises to enhance food security and land use outcomes in the face of future challenges.
