we can feed ourselves

The number of people who go hungry in Africa’s poorest countries is growing despite advances in food production, say Oxfam researchers . A new report by the global anti-poverty group says more than 230 million people – or one-in-four Africans living south of the Sahara – are undernourished, up 38% from 20 years ago. In the same time, it contends that Africa can produce the food it needs to reduce hunger and improve nutrition.
  The EU alone imports 40% of sub-Saharan Africa’s agricultural exports.
