Population growth and food supply in Africa

Population growth and food supply in Africa

Urban and rural development in Third World countries: problems of population in developing nations: 49-55

The chapter discusses food supply in Africa in the context of that continent's population growth. Food production in Africa is not seen to have kept pace with population growth. Some African countries that were self-sufficient in food in the 1950s became net importers of food in the 1980s. The chapter tackles the question of what can be done drastically to increase the growth rate of agricultural production from the current 2% to 4% per annum.
