Gates, Rockefeller Foundations Join to Fight African Hunger

Hosted by

The Gates and Rockefeller Foundations have announced a joint project to create a new Green Revolution in sub-Saharan Africa, which, if current trends continue, will be the only region in the world where the number of poor people will be higher in 2015 than it was in 1990. The foundations hope to avoid the past pitfalls that caused environmental problems and favored large agricultural operations over small family farms.
