Increasing agricultural productivity in Africa and removing trade restrictions are our best hope for feeding the planet

If we are to succeed in alleviating poverty and providing the necessary framework for sustainable development on our planet, there is no more pressing need than ensuring the supply of affordable food for our people. Not only have we failed to adequately address the issue of food security, but the situation threatens to take a turn for the worse in the near future.

There are two keys to tackling this problem, enhancing production – particularly in Africa – and ensuring that trade in food flows unhindered from the lands of the plenty to the lands of the few. Without immediate action in these two areas, there is a risk that hunger will become even more widespread, with many million more lives at stake.
