The objective of the subprogramme is to ensure food security and sustainable development in member countries of the ECA by: planning and implementing a critical programme to raise policy-makers' awareness of the urgency of food, population and environmental concerns (the nexus issues) in development planning; offering member States feasible solutions drawn from best practices within Africa and around the world; encouraging ECA member States to develop and take full advantage of their abilities to foster and utilise science and technology for development; providing technical advisory services to enhance understanding and management of the complex interactions.
