    There is broad consensus in Egypt that, despite its achievements, the Sustainable Agricultural Development Strategy ( 2030 needs to be reviewed in a number of areas As an agricultural and rural development strategy aiming to address existing and future challenges, there is a need for the SADS to go beyond a sectoral scope, as interlinkages between agriculture, water, land use, climate change, agro industry, input supply, food security and nutrition are key to determining the outcomes of the overall development process The environment, in particular water, land and climate change, is a sector closely considered within the SADS 2030 The recently developed National Water Resource Plan for Egypt provides an opportunity to endow the SADS 2030 with a well rounded vision and to assesses agricultural development needs with water management provisions In addition, it was agreed that linking agricultural and value chain development might provide a framework for developing more resilient agriculture and rural non farm sectors able to generate better jobs, reduce rural poverty and vulnerability and enhance food security At the outset of the project, specific focus was needed upon the favouring the participation of smallholders in modern value chains, ensuring a smooth exit out of the agricultural sector and employment opportunities in other sectors primarily agrifood processing and distribution for those unable to continue working in agriculture.

    Child labour in agriculture is both a social, economic, and livelihood issue. The cross-cutting nature requires a multiple stakeholder approach in addressing its root causes. In sub-Saharan Africa, the phenomena exist mainly within smallholder farmers but also significantly in capture fishing, livestock, and forestry. Today, the proportion of child labour in agriculture remains at 70 percent. This figure has barely changed over the last decade. What has made this more devasting is the emergence of COVID-19 pandemic which is set to increase the incidence of child labour to exponential levels if stakeholders do not act immediately. To break this vicious cycle and increase the pace of work to end child labour in agriculture, stakeholders should invest into agri-food systems, enhance social protection schemes, governments should make agriculture part of primary education, build the capacity of stakeholders to effect a behavioural change, and develop the required systems to collect data for decision making. These will go a long way as a catalyst to speed up collective efforts to end child labour in agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa.

    Marine and inland fisheries provide millions of people around the globe with food security and livelihood opportunities. Advancing knowledge on how the world’s marine and inland capture fisheries are accessed, used, and managed using various types of rights-based approaches (RBAs) is a crucial step towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and attaining food and nutrition security and livelihood benefits. The Global Conference on Tenure and User Rights in Fisheries 2018 created a neutral platform for a wide variety of participants, including government officials; fishers from industrial, small-scale and indigenous/traditional communities; fisheries-related stakeholders; nongovernment organizations (NGOs); civil society organizations (CSOs); intergovernmental organizations (IGOs); and academics from around the world. Sharing perceptions and experiences, participants exchanged information and concrete examples through case studies on how tenure and RBAs can harmonize the concepts of responsible fisheries, social and economic development as well as ideas and concerns about the fair and equitable application of user rights in capture fisheries. UserRights 2018 was a unique event that brought together both technical expertise and practical case studies, with the objective of using this diverse knowledge to advance the SDGs.
