Nearly 50 years after independence, Africa is still desperately grasping at self food sufficiency. This situation, which impedes development on the Continent, mobilized African States and International Organizations (AU, AFDB, FAO, IFAD, ECA, UNIDO) to organize a High Level Conference on the Development of Agribusiness and Agro-industries in Africa in March 2010 in Abuja.
