  • Description

    The Food and Agriculture organisation (FAO) has completed a study into how africa can become more nearly self sufficient in food by 1985, and it makes clear that the aim of self sufficiency within a decade would be extremely difficult if not impossible to achieve. The report is optimistic, however, that with a strong will and appropriate measures, a 94 percent level of self sufficiency should be possible by 1985. The report is simply called "A Regional Food Plan for Africa", and it emphasises the seriousness of the African food situation, with production in recent years increasing at a lower pace than previously, and at a rate which does not keep up with population growth and demand. The report is to be discussed at the FAO's Regional Conference for Africa in Arusha, Tanzania, from 18 to 29 September. The Director of the FAO's Policy Analysis Division Mr. Jyoti Bhattacharjee describes how the aim of near-sufficiency for Africa may be pursued.
