Insights into new nutrition and food approaches in Africa

Across Africa the diets are changing. Twenty years ago rice was not a very common food in Africa. It was bought and consumed on occasions because the price was high. But the price of rice coming from the East, is cheap and is comparable to some of the cereals. Because of the low price, there was a big move towards rice consumption. Also, the countries in Africa have developed irrigation schemes and the local production is converting to rice.

Dr Marco Ferroni, Chair, CGIAR System Management Board, held discussions with representatives of all the CGIAR centres based in India earlier this month.

Dr Ferroni was briefed on various research activities undertaken by the centers and future priorities. Special emphasis was put on the possibility of undertaking new research activities as a collaborative/CGIAR group to maximize the expertise of available resources within each Center. Meetings were held with the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) for strong collaboration of CGIAR with the Indian agricultural research system. Also held were discussions with the Secretary, Ministry of External Affairs on enhanced South–South collaboration as well as with Niti Aayog, India’s nodal planning and policy body of the Government of India
