African Food Security the new Economic wave (AFRIFOOD SEC)

In the course of mans economic and social evolution post WW2 there have been distinct challenges that shaped the outcomes of many human endeavours.

1960`s – The cold war

1970`s – The oil crisis

1980`s – Inflation and terrorism

1990`s – Aids, the Internet, cellular phones and the resource boom

2000`s –  Global warming, Social media and China

2010`s – Food security

During all this time, development and wealth, the people who had little became more and received less and those that had more received more. Increased hunger and poverty became evident.

Our current situation – 2010’s Food security

Any number of UN reports shows a steady decline in food security although food production in many areas have increased. Increased production costs, declining demand in mature economies and political strife have however reduced the export of food and production in marginal countries increasing the shortage.

Out of all the continents in the world Africa is the best suited to play a leading role in the fight to increase the food security of the world. The arable land is as big as the USA, India, China most of Europe and Eastern Europe combined.

Africa offers  promising elements for the recovery of food security:

Good Water,

Plenty of Sunshine,

Affordable Labour,

A central location to most markets in the under developed areas,

A market of 1.1 billion people (by the end of the century 40% of the world population will live in Africa and 50% of them will be children).

The concept

Project by Project or Global Company covering all projects.

The rationale

Invest money in the new wave of wealth creation and social responsibility creating a sustainable business while uplifting poverty.
