Kofi Annan, former Secretary General of the United Nations and now Chair of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) speaks at a conference entitled "Toward a 'Green Revolution' in Africa?"This conference is an Initiative of the Salzburg Global Seminar (www.SalzburgGlobal.org), the Institute of Development Studies (www.ids.ac.uk), and the Future Agricultures Consortium (www.future-agricultures.org).Against a background of spiralling world food prices, Kofi Annan reminds world leaders that the unfolding world food crisis may roll back the progress that has been achieved by African countries in the last decade. He challenges them to support Africa's own efforts with major new investments to accelerate growth in agriculture and sustain ongoing economic recovery."We need to work together to turn things around on this continent," the former UN secretary-general says, telling the assembled experts to "remain engaged, not only in seminars and discussion rooms but action on the ground." He also urges them to "engage with the farmers."moreless
