The African Union (AU) was reformed with a charter on July 9, 2002 to defend Africa’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence, eradicate all forms of colonialism in Africa and promote international cooperation.
The theme of Africa Day 2022 is ‘Nutrition’, focusing on the importance of tackling malnutrition and food insecurity.
Over 100 million Africans face catastrophic levels of food insecurity, poverty and malnutrition and it is important that this issue is addressed.
This year’s Summit celebrates the 20th anniversary of the African Union and will take place between Wednesday 25th and Saturday 28th May 2022 in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea.
The event will be moderated by Macky Sal, current Chairman of the AU. Health, climate, food and security crises will be the focus of discussions at the summit.
It is hoped that the summit and discussions will bring to the fore the food crisis Africa is facing and offer lasting solutions.
