Sustainable agricultural mechanization can redeem Africa from perpetual food insecurity

The framework presents a menu of priority elements to be considered by AUC Member States when developing their own national strategies for sustainable agricultural mechanization.

Abstract
 
This publication, Sustainable Agricultural Mechanization: A Framework for Africa, is a result of continuous and thorough discussions among high-level policymakers and experts of the AU Member States, the AUC, FAO and other partners in the fields of food and agriculture. It aims to inform policymakers and decision makers in the Member States and the Regional Economic Communities (RECs) in Africa, and the wider development community dealing with agricultural development, on the significance of mainstreaming sustainable agricultural mechanization in the overall national and regional agricultural development programmes.
