Central African Forum on Cassava Aims to Improve Food Security

A newly established regional forum on cassava for Central African countries aims to facilitate dialogue to improve how to add value to cassava farming. Ministers of agriculture and rural development from Cameroun, Central African Republic and Gabon are optimistic that agriculture could transform the region into a semi-industrial economy, with cassava being at the centre of the sector. They were speaking with agricultural experts, policymakers and smallholder farmers during the inaugural biennial Cassava forum held in Cameroon last month (6-9 December).
