Overview

Poverty and Food Insecurity in Africa: The Voice of the Voiceless is an insightful book on the true financial state of Africa and how it has affected the food security of Africans. The author, Dr. Tarla, grew up in the North-West Province of Cameroon with parents who were experienced farmers. He had personal knowledge of how his father's business prospered and how they lived comfortably until economic troubles and food poverty struck all of Africa.

This book provides a thorough discussion of the ideas of food security, food insecurity, and food sovereignty. It also covers the production limiting factors and the three pillars of food security in Africa: availability, access, stability, and utilization. Biofuel, water, and oil have a significant impact on food production costs. If these three resources are properly managed, the price of food might even go down. Another method of addressing food insecurity is to properly use genetic engineering in plant cultivation. Africa must look within itself and take specific steps to exploit its resources to combat poverty and food insecurity.
