Africa beyond the famine: the case for hope


Working Paper African Studies Center, Boston University ( 135): 17pp.
Africa beyond the famine: the case for hope
The history of Africa's food crisis is outlined and prospects for the future are assessed. The discussion traces the events leading up to the great famine of 1984, highlighting the compound impact of 17 years of below average rainfall, widespread destruction of the forests, expanded cropping and livestock grazing, and increased demand for fuelwood.
