Summary :

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, through its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, addresses the interconnected root causes of the most persistent ills communities face today and sets an ambitious target of ending hunger and malnutrition for all, by 2030. It recognizes that a lasting end to hunger and undernutrition cannot be achieved in isolation but through partnerships and collaborations. This ambition is consistent with African Union Commission (AUC) agenda 2063, and Malabo declaration, with particular reference to the commitment of ending hunger by 2025. Furthermore, in accordance with the Rome Principle, the Korean agricultural technology transfer to developing countries supports country-led agricultural technology development programs. It’s against this strategic orientation thatRural Development Administration(RDA) and African Forum for Agricultural Advisory Services (AFAAS) have been inspired by their common objectives and reached mutual understanding to cooperate and to combine their resources and efforts to address issues in Agricultural Extension and Advisory Services (AEAS) as one of the pillars for poverty reduction and sustainable development in Africa. RDA and AFAAS signed a partnership Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)in April 2017 to formalise their cooperation.
