Agricultural Development Print

Food security through climate change is a daily issue to many families in some parts of sub-Saharan Africa. In the wet and bountiful areas of West Africa, food security is less a function of climate change, and more a function of investment focus.

The opportunities in Agriculture are enormous:

Only a few years ago the Governor of Kwara State, presented 10 Zimbabwean farmers  with 10000Ha of land and the funds to farm it. They are now successfully growing cattle, chicken, maize and vegetables.

The United Farmers Co-operative of Ogun State, have recently been offered 10,000Ha of land on which to develop and grow food, for an ever-increasing population.

All this is in a region that exported its agricultural produce around the world in the 1960’s. Now there is almost nothing exported.    Instead, food products are imported from the West.   The land is still there, the work force is still there, but the people to fund the agricultural development are all looking the other way, and missing a fundamental opportunity.
