Al Jazeera Reports On Agricultural Improvements In Africa, Helping To Reduce Malnutrition, Poverty

Al Jazeera: How can food security in Africa be achieved?
“The Alliance for a Green Revolution (AGRA) says that agricultural productivity over the past 10 years has improved lives in Ghana, Rwanda, Ethiopia, and Burkina Faso. AGRA says agriculture is more effective at cutting poverty than other sectors. … Malnutrition and poverty levels are falling in some of the highest risk countries where people do not have enough to eat. Farming is a main source of income for more than 60 percent of the work force in Africa. … But is the success sustainable?…” (Zeidan, 9/8).
