PROGRAM TO TRANSFORM THE AFRICAN SAVANNAH TO END EXTREME POVERTY BY 2030
AN INSPIRING AGENDA TO TRANSFORM THE AFRICAN SAVANNAH TO END EXTREME POVERTY BY 2030
The African Savannah contains most of the poorest regions in our continent. Yet is also the region most suitable for commercial agriculture and agriculture-led industrialisation. It awaits proper attention to transform it into the breadbasket of the world.
To do so we ask the World Bank and other development finance institutions to lead this process by committing to mobilise cash and guarantees to the tune of $1bn over the next 15 years, which should leverage up to $50bn in private funding to transform the African Savannah so that no one is truly left behind..
