AgriAfrica: Food loss driving hunger

Jul 08 2021

In Sub-Saharan Africa, on-farm losses of fruits and vegetables were the highest in the world before the pandemic hit, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization. The United Nations estimates that an additional 45 million people in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia became acutely food insecure last year.

Over the next three episodes Africa Science Focus will be taking a closer look at food production, as part of a new mini-series, AgriAfrica. Join us as we dig into the continent’s agricultural infrastructure and find out about the local innovations that are helping to make food safer, and more accessible.
