Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is facing and ever-worsening food security crisis due to rapid population growth, inadequate domestic food production, and a general lack of sound resource management. In his innovative new book, Dr. Woldezion Mesghinna addresses the root cause to this problem: dependence on subsistence agriculture. Join the Africa Center as Dr. Mesghinna explains current farming practices in the subcontinent, and introduces science- and engineering-based methods aimed at helping SSA countries achieve food security, attain access to safe and sustainable water supplies, and ascend to the initial stages of light industrialization.
