Défis Sud n°91 - The Congo will be rural or will cease to be

The latest issue of Défis Sud, the newsletter published by SOS Faim, looks at the Congo - a country the size on a continent in the centre of Africa, with tremendous agricultural and rural potential. However, the rulers of the Democratic Republic of Congo need to proceed beyond a mining-based vision of the economy and strengthen the true productive forces of their country, most of which lie in the agricultural sector. At the same time, they must be careful to safeguard the Congo’s fabulous natural heritage. By drawing up an Agricultural Code, the Congolese government is declaring its ambition to find the means to revive agriculture, fisheries and livestock rearing. This dossier highlights the advantages the government possesses and the obstacles it will need to overcome.
