The challenge for Africa to feed itself and become a major food supplier for the world is compounded by climate change and the need to produce healthier, safer, and more nutritious food while producing less waste and fewer greenhouse gases. Yet after more than a decade of progress in reducing hunger in Africa, the number of undernourished is on the rise again. FAO recently reports that 256 million Africans go hungry every day; 93% are in sub-Saharan Africa. As the continent’s population is expected to reach 2 billion by 2050, and considering continued urbanization and climate change, Africa’s ability to feed itself is at great risk unless significant transformations occur across its economy and agricultural sector.
