Biotechnology in Africa has collected a number of reviews and reports on biotechnology initiatives on the continent. The book collects opinions from fields as diverse as economics, agriculture, biotechnology, law, and politics, arguing for Africans to set their own biotechnology agenda in the face of food security challenges.
The writers critique previous biotechnology initiatives, make predictions on the future of biotechnology in Africa, and call on African leaders to champion an African biotechnology renaissance. They argue that biotechnology has the potential to solve many problems faced by African countries today, including food security, poor living standards, and the threat of climate change.
