Africa's Turn: A New Green Revolution for the 21st Century

Africa's Turn: A New Green Revolution for the 21st Century

Africa's Turn: A New Green Revolution for the 21st Century (12 pages, PDF), explores the challenge of extending the Green Revolution — the result of a well-planned philanthropic effort to dramatically improve crop harvests in Latin America and Asia — to small farms in Africa. Among other things, the report looks at the efforts of the Rockefeller Foundation to collaborate with local scientists to introduce agricultural and water-management techniques that may eventually transform unreliable subsistence farming into a successful agricultural economy in Africa.
