Livestock investment master plan

Agriculture is a major source of income in Africa, with 50-70% of Africans relying on agriculture for their livelihoods but the sector’s true potential remains untapped, limiting economic development and contributing to persistent poverty and deteriorating food and nutrition security across the continent. The continent is seeing demand for animal source foods increase rapidly as incomes rise, driven by population growth, economic growth and urbanisation, which offers an unprecedented opportunity to reposition livestock as a business activity with the potential to significantly improve food and nutrition security, drive inclusive growth, create millions of new jobs along several value chains and support the continent’s efforts to become a major player in global export markets.
