Agriculture and Rural Development

Despite recent progress, malnutrition and hunger are still prevalent in a number of countries, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. The second SDG targets the elimination of this scourge by 2030, by focusing on sustainable agriculture, increasing the production capacity of small-scale farming and developing rural infrastructure. AFD contributes to this ambition by supporting agroecological intensification and the development of sustainable agricultural landscapes.
