The mandate of the Department of Rural Economy and Agriculture of the African Union Commission is to initiate and promote policies that can contribute to the development of rural economy and improve livelihoods through increasing agricultural productivity, ensuring food security, and enhancing sustainable use and management of Africa’s natural resources.
Today we commemorate the International Day of Peace, established in 1981 by a resolution of the United Nations as a call for a one-day cessation of hostilities in all armed conflicts around the world. In January 2011, the African Union (AU) Assembly of Heads of State and Government decided to institutionalize Peace Day as part of the ongoing Make Peace Happen Campaign.
Malabo, Equatorial Guinea 30 June 2011-The African Union Commission Chairperson Dr Jean Ping today said the popular uprisings in North Africa should be seen as an opportunity for AU member states to renew their commitment to the AU agenda for democracy and governance and to implement socio economic reforms that are demanded by their people.
