Africa Agriculture Status Report 2016 is a report of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) and its partners. It highlights major trends in African agriculture, the drivers of those trends, and the emerging challenges that Africa’s food systems are facing in the 21st century.
The report also identifies policies and programs that can support the movement of Africa’s farming systems from subsistence-oriented, towards more commercialized farming systems that can contribute to economic growth.
Additionally, the report identifies areas that enable better targeting of investment resources, as well as the necessary conditions that can propel African agricultural transformation.
It further explores how agricultural transformation can contribute to solving the reality of rural poverty, low productivity, food insecurity, malnutrition, unemployment, and lower income among the population in countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
