THE REVOLUTION THAT MATTERS

Carl Manlan, development practitioner

Transforming the agricultural sector creates opportunities to improve skills and new employment opportunities. The demand for higher value goods from agricultural output creates opportunities to diversify economies. Enabling prosperity and agricultural transformation have important links that other nations have successfully connected. While we have the land and the human capabilities, we are not yet where we should be, as a continent, to take full advantage of the possibilities that a transformed agriculture system can offer. This course will explore some of the pathways that the revolution that matters to Africa – agriculture – could take for the benefit of the African people and the world.
