Energy is an important input in agricultural production and for achieving food security. It powers mechanized cultivation and harvesting, irrigation, food processing, storage and transportation of produce. In Africa, progress to mordenise agricultural systems to ensure higher yields and reduce wastage has lagged due to insufficient energy inputs and use of crude equipment. We need to align actions to improve and transform both energy and agriculture systems, while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Renewables can help.
Where could renewables be applied in agri-food systems to support food security?
What role can renewables play in transforming agri-food systems to ensure higher yields and reduce wastage?
How can we increase linkages between renewables and food systems?
