Future of African Agriculture: Innovations and Opportunities


This report describes the lessons learnt from cases of sustainable intensification of agriculture in the African Union. These cases show that under supportive conditions, agriculture in Africa can produce higher yields, generate adequate income for farmers, regenerate the natural capital and environmental services, and contribute to human development.

This review has been commissioned as part of the UK Government’s Foresight project, The Future of Food and Farming: Challenges and choices for global sustainability. The views expressed do not necessarily represent policy of any government or organisation.
