Sustainable agricultural development in central Africa
The development methods perpetrated by some developed countries in the name of globalisation, but really for profit and to maintain global market supremacy, are met with increasing disillusionment with the governments of more and more African countries, especially those with good governance records and a diversified foreign collaboration. Nigeria, Ghana, Angola, Zambia, and Uganda are only some of the spearheading countries looking at augmenting their economies with more sustainable methods that encompass different aspects of their societies. In particular, the focus is on the development of large-scale sustainable agriculture, with the use of newly discovered natural, highly effective fertilisers that increase long-term productivity. The recently-patented fertiliser includes a natural soil healing agent that is particularly effective and does not strip the land of its properties, in contrast with the what is currently being used by large multinational companies. This study aims to analyse the incorporation of eco-friendly, low-cost, and innovative technology into agricultural development with an approach that is specific to local cultures and environments. It also discusses the feasibility for this method to be implemented by local communities, under a coordinated supervision up to national and international levels.
