At the request of the Government of Sudan, supported by the FAO Intergovernmental Group on Grains, the Fund has financed an international workshop on food security in Egypt and Sudan. The workshop was co-sponsored and organized by the African Development Bank (AfDB). The objective of the workshop was to conduct a full analysis of the wheat and maize value chains in Egypt and Sudan paying special attention to identifying perspectives for collaborative action to strengthen the production of these two grains in both countries.
The workshop was organized by the AfDB and took place in Khartoum, Sudan on 25 - 27 November 2013. The report of the workshop (including the main presentations made) is attached.
