Growing Green: The Challenge Of Sustainable Agricultural Development In Sub-Saharan Africa
Agriculture is the dominant economic sector in most Sub-Saharan nations and Africans depend almost entirely on domestic production for their food. Millions of farmers in the region face environmental challenges, such as poor soil, while simultaneously being denied access to markets as a result of a hostile policy environment. Poverty and malnutrition are widespread. Under these circumstances, Sub-Saharan Africa stands to benefit greatly from the development of agriculture through modern technologies and from public policies which support agriculture, commerce and entrepreneurship.
