Africa holds much of the world's agricultural land reserves and the majority of its labour force is involved in
agriculture, yet it is currently unable to feed itself.
Modern agricultural techniques, technologies and sustainable resource management could enable many
countries in Africa to not just provide for themselves but to also export goods to meet ever-growing
In most African countries, agriculture supports the survival and well-being of up to 70% of the population, yet
a large portion of society remains impoverished and malnourished.
Africa contains some of the world's most cultivable land, favourable weather conditions and nutrient rich soils. Some countries have in the past been net exporters of raw produce and a few still are. Most exports however, have traditionally been at the bulk commodity level as opposed to higher-value processed goods.
There are significant opportunities to introduce the latest agricultural and forestry knowledge, experience and techniques to dramatically increase yields, improve the consistency and quality of produce and broaden the range of cultivation.
Greater productivity combined with the development of downstream processing industries would allow sovereign nations to retain a greater share of the overall value-chain and in time develop an industry that can offer
long-term food security and wealth creation.
Good Earth Power aims to introduce commercially viable technologies and development models that will benefit local communities, their environment and nations as a whole.
Good Earth Power's Land Development programme is broad within two areas of focus, aiming to create a robust and diversified platform to deliver food security, job creation and income generation.
