Agriculture in Africa, value added out of GDP

Year: 2006 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
For the future of Africa, agriculture remains one of the most important issues. A majority of the population, especially outside urban areas, are involved in agriculture, and food security is one of the most important issues to solve in the short term in some parts of the region. The current financial importance varies, as presented in this map, with agriculture representing up to 50-60% of the total economy in some countries (Guinea-Bissau, Central Africa, Ethiopia) and representing 20-40% in Sub-Saharan Africa.
