Featured Issue: African Journal of Food, Agriculture, Nutrition and Development Vol. 12 No. 5

In the editorial (Drought in the United States of America: How does it affect Africa) of vol. 12 no. 5 of the African Journal of Food, Agriculture, Nutrition and Development the future world hunger crisis is discussed by the Editor-in-Chief, Ruth Oniang’o. She notes that because America’s economy affects the world so greatly, the 2012 summer drought was felt by the entire world. This is due to an increase in food costs as the result of the drought which pushed aid to the developing world further down the list of America’s priorities. In the wake of this event, Oniang’o gives a call to action for African governments to subsidize their farmers. Subsidies will help offset the effects of the droughts that have been experienced in the continent over many years and will also reduce the reliance on world food aid.
