Sustainable use and development of national animal and feed resources in the production of human food in Africa



Sustainable use and development of national animal and feed resources in the production of human food in Africa



Veterinary medicine impacts on human health and nutrition in Africa Proceedings Addis Ababa, Ethiopia 27 to 31 August, 1995: 81-86



Sustainable food production in Africa is discussed. As the human population of sub-Saharan Africa is projected to increase from about 500 million in 1990 to 1300 million in 2025, total food production will need to increase by 3 to 3.5% annually. The demand for livestock products grows even faster. The livestock systems vary greatly from agro-pastoralism to mixed crop-livestock systems. Cattle are considered to be the most important.
