Adam Mostert, CEO FERTASA

The theme of the Congress held in Somerset West from 12 to 15 April 2015 was:
“Food production for a growing population in Southern Africa”.

The need for increased food production to meet the demands of a growing population and improve living standards was highlighted by more than one speaker. Africa’s population is expected to double to 2.5 billion by 2050. Demand for food is increasing even faster due to the Continent’s growing middle-class which is consuming more and more protein-intensive foods.

It is often stated that the Continent has the potential to feed itself and to produce food for export to the rest of the world. In reality, Africa spends about $35 billion annually on food imports; money that could be used more productively on the development of infrastructure, education, health systems, etc. In Southern Africa import replacement must be agriculture’s primary goal.

Ms Joyene Isaacs, head of the Western Cape Department of Agriculture, referred to the Maputo Declaration (2003) where the heads of state of African countries agreed to adopt sound policies for agricultural and rural development, and committed themselves to allocating at least 10% of national budgetary resources for such implementation within five years. Few countries have reached that goal. She believes . . .

A new infographic from Farming First and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) entitled "Africa's Agricultural Potential" focuses on the many ways in which Africa can address hunger and malnutrition while boosting livelihoods and promoting inclusive growth sustainably.
