Africa Agriculture Status Report 2016 is a report by 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 identifies policies and programs that can support the movement of Africa’s farming systems from subsistence-oriented to commercially oriented, which can contribute to economic growth.
The report identifies areas that enable better targeting of investment resources and the necessary conditions to 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.
