Aquaculture In Africa

We look at why aquaculture has had a slow development in Africa? What are the challenges faced by fish farmers in the continent. Every year, in lakes such Lake Malawi, Lake Victoria, more fish is taken out without much replenishing. Unregulated fishing, using illegal nets, is depleting the stocks of young fish that are so crucial to the lake’s future.
This week we hear what is happening in Lake Victoria. (Relate if anything has changed)

Land Governance in Africa

“Land governance is a proven pathway to achieving transformational change and impact that will help secure Africa’s future for the benefit of all its families,” says Jamal Saghir, World Bank Director for Sustainable Development in Africa.
The World Bank has introduced a program that includes securing tenancy rights over individual and public lands while improving land governance: enhancing transparency, power decentralization, developing information systems and databases to ensure proper documentation and better mapping of lands.

Food security in Africa

Climate change is affecting Africa in a negative way.

It has presented a growing threat to food security and nutrition in Africa and is a particularly severe threat to countries relying heavily on agriculture. According to recent reports by FAO “the effects of climate change, reduced precipitation and higher temperatures are already seen on the yields of staple food crops. Without climate change adaptation and mitigation, by 2050 an estimated additional 71 million people will be food insecure in the world, over half of whom will be in sub-Saharan Africa”

How has your country done to be food secure. We look at the World Food Day and why it was established.

Small Scale Farming In Africa

Africa’s small scale farmers face many challenges.

In most of their dealings they are prevented from scaling up their participation in markets, including insecure rights to land and natural resources. They do not have a say in policy decisions that impact on their lives, but yet, they produce almost 80 percent of food in the continent and arguably throughout the globe.

Examples of their work are equally unsung!

In this episode we look at small scale farmers’ activities in some parts of the continent.
