The Brenthurst Foundation, Tel Aviv University, the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, together with the Agricultural Research Organisation (ARO) and the AJC’s Africa Institute recently staged a dialogue on ‘Agriculture and Technology for Development’ in Abeokuta, Nigeria.

Two questions determine the course for African economic growth in the future: where will burgeoning populations find jobs, and which industries will remain or emerge to provide them? From what we know now, it is likely that food production and processing will grow in importance. Could clever adoption of localised technology turn Africa into its own breadbasket, and provide a bridge from agriculture to agribusiness?
