SUSTAINABLE FOOD PRODUCTION & TRADE

In order to face the new challenges of the 21th century, not in the least providing food security to a growing world population, confronting climate change, and ensuring enough inputs for bio-fuels, Africa will need to pay far more attention to its agricultural development and trade. Agriculture is seen as a strategic sector because of the multiple inputs it provides in a resource efficient and bio-based economy, which requires nothing less than a new technological revolution.

Africa and Europe’s cooperation in agriculture and food security issues occurs within the context of the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) which aims to contribute to greater food security and food independence, by improving income opportunities in African agriculture and increasing agricultural trade.

Mazungumzo’s work is focused on highlighting practicable strategies to optimise the agricultural sector as a tool to improve overall economic welfare, while ensuring long-term food security.
