Six countries in Africa are benefitting from a UN fund designed to improve food security across the continent.

The Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Malawi, Niger, Mali and South Sudan have signed agreements with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and will receive $2 million each from the Africa Solidarity Trust Fund.

The contributions will be used to bolster a wide range of projects to improve food security, nutrition, agriculture and rural development.
