Africa’s countries must conserve their land resources as they are the most strategic reserves the continent owns, Dr Kanayo Nwanze has said.
Dr Nwanze made the call during an exclusive interview with The New Times ahead of the African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) scheduled to take place next month.
Nwanze is a board member of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA), the organizers of the forum.
He is also the former President of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
Highlighting Africa’s resources, Nwanze said that the continent has the largest rivers, an abundance of streams and in-land valleys than anywhere else, most of which are yet to be tapped.
