How Agriculture Is Booming In Africa
By Paul Homewood
We regularly hear that it is places like Africa which are suffering most from climate change.
When we look at agricultural statistics, however, there is no evidence of this. On the contrary, as the official UN figures show, cereal production and yields, meat production and the gross value (at constant prices) of all agricultural output have all been rising steadily since 1970.
There may be all sorts of reasons for this, but it is evident that, as far as agriculture is concerned, Africans are much better off than they were a few years ago.
