Member groups of Friends of the Earth Africa (FoEA), farmers, civil society organisations, legal practitioners, media representatives, development experts, community representatives, government ministries and agencies, and the academia met in Abuja, on 13th August 2008 to deliberate on the challenges posed by the renewed scramble for Africa by the North and the wasteful use of food crops as fuel to feed cars and machines while people go hungry.

The conference provided stakeholders an opportunity to raise awareness, mobilize and build resistance against corporate-driven unsustainable production, consumption and trade in agricultural products for conversion to agrofuels, and threats to food sovereignty.

A Communique was released at the end of the highly successful meeting. Click here to read/download the communique in adobe portable document format.
