Investing in the right place can help to solve multiple problems across Africa. Currently, a huge challenge is to feed a large and increasing population in the face of climate change, where food production in the continent heavily relies on rainfall. In addition, there is widespread rural poverty.
Africa possesses a resource that can enable the continent to become independent of food imports and become food secure: cultivable land that is fed by rain. 69% of such land is unused. Investing in rainfed agriculture can change this narrative, offering returns beyond contributing to Africa's economy.
