dc.description.abstractIn the last decade, Africa has experienced robust growth driven by rising commodity prices, domestic demand and stronger trade and investment ties with global economies. Despite this optimism of growth, Africa remains the most food insecure continent. Hunger and poverty continue to ravage the continent and the number of people living in extreme poverty is expected to grow. The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) in its recent Global Hunger Index report (2014) indicate that almost 33% of the population in Africa (close to 200 million people) are undernourished. The hunger situation is projected to worsen over the next two decades unless drastic measures are taken.

  • ACE II [2]
    The ACE II project was conceived in response to multiple and well-formulated project proposals from individual countries and universities for establishing regional education and research centers in specific topics. This larger systematic regional project is meant to strengthen longer-term African capacity to train at the highest level a new generation of Africans who can develop and apply science and technology to solve Africa’s most pressing challenges. Given the shared nature of these challenges such as energy shortage, high infant mortality, low agriculture productivity and high food imports, the challenge of adding value to primary commodities in Africa, for example, the investments and the capacity from this project should benefit the region and not be limited by national borders.
