Africa Urged to Invest in Food Production

Food production in sub-Saharan Africa must rise by 50 percent to feed an estimated population of 1.3 billion by 2030, says Accenture South Africa

According to Accenture South Africa, food production in sub-Saharan Africa must rise by 50 percent to feed an estimated population of 1.3 billion by 2030.

Managing director of strategy and sustainability at Accenture South Africa, Grant Hatch, points out that investment of about US$93 billion a year is needed to develop the infrastructure required to support the region’s agricultural sector.

Hatch warns that, "Failing to address production to meet growing demand has potentially dire consequences for many African countries; the challenge is to break dependence on resource exports and food imports."
