Are we sure that giving money is helping? Or are knowledge and enterprise the key to a self-sustaining Africa?
Is Africa truly the 'lost continent'? This is not the case if the researchers of Wageningen UR have anything to say about it. Amid all the famine, drought, poverty and disease, more and more young Africans are rising to become a new entrepreneurial class. The natural resources and opportunities for arable farming are legion.
Promoting knowledge and enterprise in Africa can make the difference, with more focus on sustainable development of agriculture, utilising useful plants, simple methods of farming insects, and promoting enterprise. Wageningen UR is helping to make knowledge applicable, to ensure that the continent can develop by itself.
