Abstract

Africa is now at the centre of the world food and hunger discussions because there is growing support for the view that the basic problem – the food production gap has been building up for several decades and it will require a minimum of 10-15 years to solve it (eicher, 1982). The selection of food security in Africa as the theme for a meeting of deans of food security in Africa as the them for a meeting of deans of faculties of agriculture is timely because this is the tenth anniversary of the 1974 world food conference in Rome, ministerial level meeting called it deal with what was perceived to be a world food crisis.Although the world food crisis vanished a few years after the Rome conference, the food production crisis is in Africa is real. Moreover,Africa’s food production problem will not vanish through short term responses such as increasing aid, policy dialogues and the preparation food strategy statements
