The Greening of Africa

Breaking Through in the Battle for Land and Food

by Paul Harrison

There have been worrying trends in Africa in the degradation of the environment, which is likely to have negative implications for curing famine, poverty and financial crises. Published for the first time in Africa, this second edition sets the scene for emerging technologies and approaches likely to work in Africa. Appropriate approaches to food policy in particular are advocated. The first part of the book enumerates the challenges. The second part sets out the various responses; and part three examines the lessons of the past. Information is given on local and grassroots initiatives towards involvement in environmental revolution for improved food production in Africa.
