“Africa holds 65% of the uncultivated arable land left to feed 9 billion by 2050. Its vast savannas are the world's largest agriculture frontier, estimated at 400 million ha. But only 10% of this is cultivated. That’s a mere 40 million hectares.” Learn how the Africa Development Bank is unlocking Africa’s agricultural potential.
