The challenge of food security in Africa will intensify in the coming decades. Demand for food will increase sharply in Africa as the African population is set to double by 2050, and as the population in parallel become more affluent. At the same time, with a chronic food deficit, one-quarter of its population undernourished, the lowest crop yields in the world and poor soil quality, Africa’s starting point in terms of food security is challenging. Climate change will further exacerbate the risks facing agriculture in Africa, which is dominated by small farms with few assets and limited capacities to adapt.
