The Business Role in Achieving a Green Revolution for Africa

The Business Alliance Against Chronic Hunger (BAACH) launches a new report on “The Business Role in Achieving a Green Revolution for Africa” for discussion at the 2008 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 23-27 January, Davos, Switzerland

(BAACH) was formed in 2006 by a group of CEOs and public leaders who outlined an action plan for business to help reduce hunger. Since then the Alliance has launched pilot work in Kenya, and is working with a broad array of global and regional companies and partners to promote business models that contribute to sustainable food production and raise incomes in poor regions. The Alliance is a cross-industry, multi-stakeholder initiative championed by the Consumer Industry Partnership community of the World Economic Forum.
