We all know how the forces of globalization have ravaged the continent of Africa. Mix this with global climate change and food security is a major concern. Here is an article from Dr Richard Munang, who is Africa Regional Climate Change Head & Co-ordinator at the United Nations Environment Programme, which ran in Aljazeera today.It discusses Ecosystem Based Agriculture and the Market pressures that control Africa’s production. While the assertions of Dr Munang are pretty agreeable one might hope that his call for “sizable increase in capital” does not require it to come from the same “investors” that have gotten Africa into the situation in the first place.
