  13. 13. Policy Actions Program Investments Advisory Overhaul ID systems and registries (SP, farmer registries) Reform policies on strategic food reserves and food aid Realign ag and food policy incentives (nutrition/climate smart agriculture) Intra-regional trade support (AfCFTA) Deploy agile and shock-responsive SP and agriculture programs Crowdsourcing agriculture and food disruptive technology solutions Mid-size agri-food financing Support to local gov’ts / comm. on food market standards and opportunities for urban agriculture High frequency monitoring of food prices, stocks, HH food security and logistics/trade disruptions Mapping of food system to identify bottlenecks and interventions Quantifying agriculture and food policies / distortions COVID-19 Food Policy and Program Responses: The Need for a Comprehensive Agenda Opportunities to leapfrog: gender / youth / capacity building / digital technologies EmergencyRecovery 13

  15. 15. Leveraging External Partnerships Building Coalitions to deliver better together Many strong partnerships, but we still need to find solutions to deliver better together:  Streamlining disparate investments and isolated interventions toward the core problem  Integrating risk management into the existing development frameworks  Focusing on (knowledge for) implementation – lessons across partners  Paving the way for future investments of partners and the private sector 15
