Power on your plate

Power on your plate

"Power on your plate" is an all-Africa summit on diversifying food systems with African traditional vegetables to increase health, nutrition and wealth.

With more than 20% of Africa’s population undernourished and close to one-third food insecure, it is clear that food systems must change - to nourish people, not merely feed them.

This important pan-African summit explores the role of traditional vegetables in strengthening and diversifying food systems, reducing poverty, energising industry, and improving health and income for all citizens. 

"Power on your plate" is a call for action: for increased investment, regional R&D programmes, and policies to promote traditional vegetables at national and regional levels and fully integrate traditional vegetables into Africa’s food systems.
