Abstract

By 2050, there will be two billion more people living on the African continent. GLIMPSE(TM), an acronym that was introduced in this journal in 2012, identified the seven biggest obstacles to providing enough food to feeding the nine billion people who will be living on earth in 2050. Here, we review the GLIMPSE(TM) challenges specifically in an African context, examining how they apply and in what ways agribusiness can contribute to meeting these challenges. The paper places agribusiness alongside governments, non-governmental organizations and charities as important players in addressing the ‘wicked’ problem of feeding the growing population, and identifies specific areas where agribusiness can make a difference.
