Research: Africa May Not Be Able to Pursue Agro-Industrial Strategy

African agriculture in its present state may not have the ability to support an agro-industrial strategy, according to a study from the Meredith Hanlon Department of Economics, Environmental Science and Biology, at Allegheny College, Meadville, Pennsylvania, U.S.

The study, entitled “Is African Agriculture Sustainable Enough to Support an Agro-Allied Industrial Development Strategy? Evidence from Ghana and Nigeria,” was presented at a session on agricultural sustainability at the 2016 African Economic Conference in Abuja, Nigeria, by Stephen Onyeiwu, a professor at Allegheny College. The conference started on Dec. 5 and continues to Dec. 7.

The 11th African Economic Conference, organized by the African Development Bank (AfDB), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the UN Economic Commission Africa (ECA), has as its theme “Feeding Africa: Towards Agro-Allied Industrialization for Inclusive Growth.”
