Why can Asia now feed its rapidly growing population, but Africa continues to experience famine? This book is the outcome of a three-year project coordinated by a group of Swedish researchers with collaborating scholars from Africa and Asia. It provides a comparative study between Asian agricultural development during the Green Revolution in food production and the current problematic agricultural situation in sub-Saharan Africa. Based on case studies of eight African and eight Asian countries (focusing on the early part of the Green Revolution), this book presents a causal and explanatory model of Asian green revolutions. It discusses why such progress has been made in Asia, but has not yet occurred in Africa. It also examines the implications of the case studies for future development in Africa.

About the Author:

Paul Van Mele is an agricultural scientist from Ghent University, Belgium who obtained his PhD studying Vietnamese fruit farmers' knowledge of pests, natural enemies and pesticides (Wageningen University, 2000). He wrote Ants as Friends (2003) and edited Way out of the Woods (2003) and Innovations in Rural Extension (2005). In 2004, his video project with rural women in Bangladesh won an international award for effective communication. From 2005 to 2010, Paul Van Mele lived in Benin, working as program leader, Learning and Innovation Systems at AfricaRice. His work with farmers, video and rural radio earned him the 2009 CGIAR Science Award for outstanding communications. He currently runs his own enterprise Agro-Insight, based in Belgium and works for AfricaRice

Review:

"Drawing on three years of research by African and Asian specialists, involving study of secondary data, interviews with key individuals, and questioning over 3000 households in more than 100 villages, this is an important study deserving critical attention from the agricultural development community." New Agriculturalist, 2005"
