The Arab-African Initiative for Sustainable Development in Africa
Despite longstanding efforts to bring economic prosperity to Africa, poverty remains a persistent problem. More than half the world’s extreme poor reside in Sub-Saharan Africa, where over 300 million people experience extreme food insecurity. To address this problem, a group of leading civil society figures from the Arab world, Africa, and many other countries met in New York on September 17, 2006 to launch the Arab-African Initiative for the Millennium Development Goals in Africa.
