We, the members of the Montpellier Panel, believe investment in resilient agricultural growth in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) can achieve sustainable food and nutrition security for the continent and significantly contribute to the African and global economy.
As we argued in our 2010 report:
• Food security underpins global security;
• Food trade is central to global trade; and
• Agricultural development is the best route to achieving economic growth that reaches the rural poor and most vulnerable in low income countries.
