Faced with a young and growing population, which is projected to reach 2.5 billion by 2050, Africa must produce more food in the context of diminishing natural resources and climate change impacts, such as shifting seasons, droughts, and floods. It is imperative that Africa’s food production systems not only produce more, but also do it in a more sustainable, carbon neutral way, which does not contribute to further environmental degradation and global warming.
