The outside world has grown weary of repeated agricultural crises in Africa. Grim prognoses of continued per capita agricultural decline make food security an increasingly elusive goal, and while the need has perhaps never been greater, ‘aid fatigue’ has dampened the willingness of outsiders to finance Africa’s agricultural development. Yet building agriculture remains central to Africa’s development. Few African countries have solved the critical challenge of ensuring food security, and most remain faced with an increasing gap between population growth and food production. Furthermore, few low-income countries whether inside or outside of Africa have found alternatives to the time-tested development strategy of basing their growth on the transfer of surplus resources from agriculture to other sectors of the economy.
