This paper focuses on the status of awareness of the nexus issues of population, environment and agriculture in selected African member states. The Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), through conferences, workshops and research has made significant contribution to the creation of awareness of the nexus issues. The Commission spearheaded the development of the Population, Environment, Development and Agriculture (PEDA) model which is an interactive computer model, which demonstrates the long-term impacts of alternative policies on the food security status of populations. The ECA has organized training workshops on PEDA in Addis Ababa and in two Sub Regional Offices of the ECA.
