Panel

Promoting fair agricultural transitions in Africa

Agriculture and nutrition

To feed the growing population on the African continent, agricultural production will have to increase significantly. Today, many believe that this agricultural revolution can only be achieved at the expense of the climate and biodiversity: a choice would have to be made between feeding and protecting the planet. However, solutions do exist, and it is on the African continent that the destiny of the planet in terms of both food and climate is at stake. The Paris Peace Forum aims to help renew the dialogue between North and South and promote a positive vision so that the climate, agricultural development and poverty reduction agendas are no longer pitted against each other.
