SADC Sustainable Livelihoods Expo 2014
Climate change is a major contributor to the rise of food insecurity, especially in Southern Africa, threatening the ability of many people to grow and buy adequate food to sustain themselves. Small-holder farmers, who produce over 90 per cent of the food in Africa, make up more than half of the food insecure population on the continent. Women are responsible for the majority of small scale food production but remain persistently disadvantaged. In response to this a coalitioni of partners across Southern Africa will be running a Food and Climate Justice Campaign that will take place in the next 2 years beginning from 2014. As part of this campaign, a Sustainable Livelihoods Expo will be held on the 22nd of November 2014 at the Harare Gardens, Zimbabwe.
