G8 leaders pledged to lift millions of Africans out of poverty by promoting investments in sustainable agriculture.

The ambitious announcement, contained in a final communique released after a high-profile gathering on a range of topics, came a day after President Barack Obama reached out to the private sector for financial support for the cause.

The initiative also comes as pledges expire from 2009 in Italy, where the G8 promised more than 20 billion dollars over three years to improve food access to Africans and others hit by the high prices and a global slowdown.
