This volume demonstrates the possibility of harmonizing agricultural production with the wellbeing of the biosphere—and that this can be achieved in Africa, our biosphere’s least developed continent, and the continent that is likely to suffer most from climate change.

The different chapters capitalize on assessments and experiences such as: lessons learned from Asia’s Green Revolution on agricultural communities; trends in African agricultural knowledge, science and technology; trade policy impacts on food production; conditions for success of water interventions for the African rural poor; and climate change implications for agriculture and food systems. Case studies share the practical experiences, lessons and successes from across Africa, demonstrating that it is possible to produce food sufficiently and at the same time, care for the biosphere.
