Video: Agriculture in Africa 2021
This Growth & Recovery Video highlights the important aspects of the recently launched Agriculture in Africa 2021: Focus Report, published in partnership with OCP Group. The video presents — with the use of graphical data — the region’s export potential, food security challenges and how the creation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), and increasing modernisation of agricultural processes provides significant growth opportunities across the entire ecosystem. As agriculture accounts for 14% of total GDP in sub-Saharan Africa, the video outlines how Africa can transform its agriculture sector, ensure food security and enhance the value chain.
