    Sustainable Development:
    “Humanity has the ability to make development sustainable to ensure that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
    Our Common Future: Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development , 1987, United Nations (A/42/427)
  • 12. An Agricultural Revolution?
    “Today, ending the poverty and hunger of hundreds of millions of Africans requires a clear focus on improving the lives of small-scale farmers . . . ”
  • 13. “This agricultural revolution must rely on uniquely African solutions to uniquely African problems:
    • solutions that improve the productivity, biodiversity, and nutritional quality of food crops;
    • 14. that practise sound agro-ecosystem management across dramatically different environments;
    • 15. that support mixed crop-livestock farming systems;
    • 16. and that consistently promote equity . . . ”
  • “It must be pro-poor and pro-environment.”
    The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (www.agra-alliance.org)
