Operation Feed Africa

Agriculture is a powerful tool for reducing poverty and hunger. Economic growth generated by agriculture is more than twice effective in reducing poverty as growth in other sectors. Agricultural development is also an effective means of assisting African countries in building capacity and infrastructure as well as introducing innovation and technology. This platform seeks to increase local food production and thereby reduce imports. African citizens will be encouraged through different farming tips, to engage in subsistence farming. With Operation Feed Africa, CEOAFRICA will ensure that Agricultural sector does not lose its pride of place in African economy.

In partnership with Agricultural Institutes in Africa, like International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Cocoa Research Institute of Nigeria (CRIN), etc, CEOAFRICA will bring new groundbreaking exploits in Agriculture to the door steps of every African. CEOAFRICA will also help to promote modern science and technology in Agriculture and serve as a reference point to serious minded farmers. CEOAFRICA’s aim is to prevent hunger and poverty towards promoting socio-economic development of the continent.

African farmers need to take the drivers’ seat of ecological agriculture and feed the continent. Eco-farming is adjudged by the United Nations in March 2011, as the best strategy of farming for improving farming in the developing world. This system of farming can feed people even in the face of climate change. Through the medium of CEO-AFRICA, enlightenment campaigns on sustainable family farming, agro-ecological production and strong local markets, will be initiated as the best to mitigate hunger and protect the planet.

 

Operation Feed Africa interface is for every African that values the importance of Agriculture in the sustainability of the economy. It is an educative interface where various farming skills are available for learning. It is a good avenue for intending farmers to learn about various forms of Agricultural techniques in different types of farming that includes mechanized and subsistent farming respectively.
