#IFAJ17 Heading to South Africa

Cindy Zimmerman Events, IFAJ

ifaj-2017“Africa – it’s time” is the theme for the 2017 International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ) World Congress April 2-8 in Gauteng- and the Western Cape of South Africa.

Why South Africa? For the world to feed the estimated population of 9 billion people by 2050, an increase of at least 70% in production will be required. At present the African population is over one billion and all eyes are on the continent to feed its growing population, more so because of its available resources.

South Africa is the gateway to the rest of Africa. African agriculture and the industry is increasingly depending on South Africa to lead the way. This makes South African agriculture a challenging but rewarding industry – an industry that has a wealth of experience and information to offer members of the IFAJ.
