    The HASTEN project aims to generate transformational changes in people, processes and markets by strengthening capacities for sustainable agrifood systems transformation across Africa, through the development of new skills to cope with complex, multilevel, multi-sectoral and multistakeholder governance, SDG integration and cross-cutting themes such as inclusion, gender, youth and environmental sustainability. The project is co-led by the FAO Office of Sustainable Development Goals (OSG), FAO Regional Office for Africa (RAF), Subregional Office for Eastern Africa (SFE) and the Subregional Office for West Africa (SFW), and will be implemented in close collaboration with FAO Country Offices in Lesotho, Rwanda and Sierra Leone.This inception meeting intends to set the groundwork for the HASTEN project, consolidating its workplan, accountability mechanisms and effective engagement of potential national stakeholders. A key tool to be discussed and validated during the meeting is a questionnaire designed to map core capacity andeducational gaps necessary for SDG-based agrifood systems transformation and education in the three implementation countries: Rwanda, Lesotho, and Sierra Leone.

    In recognition of the importance of food secure and resilient cities, many local governments across the world are prioritizing food systems in their policies and plans. Their actions usually aim at addressing broader sets of challenges such as malnutrition, environmental challenges and resilience to shocks and extreme events. However, despite the progress, the role of local and regional governments in promoting urban food systems transformation has not been sufficiently recognized at national and global levels. In most cases, particularly in developing countries, local and sub-national governments lack financial and technical capacity to advance sustainable transformation of agrifood systems at scale. To support municipalities in putting cities in the driving seat for sustainable agrifood systems, there is a growing number of urban food systems networks and initiatives at global, regional and national levels.
