Africa beyond famine: a report to the Club of Rome


, : Africa beyond famine: a report to the Club of Rome. Africa beyond famine: a report to the Club of Rome: xxiv + 347

The book addresses fundamental issues of survival such as food security, the persistence of famine and rural prosperity, through an examination of the causes underlying the recurrent food crises in Africa. These causes are manifold and complex, and particularly so in the African environment where they are an aggravated manifestation of a more general crisis of social and economic development.
