(Ecofin Agency) - Last Wednesday, Ivory Coast’s President, Alassane Ouattara, on the sidelines of launch of the 7th edition of the Africa Green Revolution Forum (AGRF), declared that land access and tenure remain quite challenging for most African nations. This was reported by the Agence ivoirienne de Presse (AIP).

According to host of this event which regrouped heads of States and governments, of national and international institutions, foundations, as well as technical and financial partners, this challenge significantly hampers agriculture’s growth. To this issue add the difficult access to high-yield seedlings, fertilizers, irrigation methods, mechanization and know-how.

Facing all these challenges, agriculture which has great potential for “wealth and job creation, sustainable and inclusive development” is thus in a dire situation. Agricultural productivity is relatively low in Africa, with archaic farming technics used involving the utilization of very little improved fertilizers, the Ivoirian President added.
