Due to the effects of poverty food insecurity is a global issue as well but the highest number of individuals living in poverty is in Africa, this is odd in the sense that Africa is so huge and could possibly be one of the largest agricultural continent, with the largest food producing capacity. What solutions are there to alleviate this problem not only for the globe but for Africa in particular? • Improving Africa agriculture. Improvements in African agriculture will be necessary to feed the world’s growing population, it is estimated that approximately 60% of the world’s potential arable land is on the African continent, with all the natural elements required to start farming like sun, water and soil for rain.

Because many crops could not be grown in Europe, agriculture was a necessary industry in the colonies, and this required more labor than the colonists could supply.
