The Middle East and North African region has a history for agriculture which has declined over the last few decades. Although many countries within the MENA region still account for a substantial amount of agricultural produce, these are not enough to feed the strong population and income growth, which has contributed to rising food consumption and shifting dietary preferences.Donate
These simple factors have forced the region to rely on to rely increasingly on food imports, and account for a sizeable share of total world imports for these commodities. Up to 97% of food in some countries is imported, even though there is arable land within the country.
The challenges of the region are not uncommon and are the same theme globally, to fill a short term void of food production, bad practices have damaged these lands. Yet again heavy use of synthetic and chemical inputs, and GMO may have served the region for a short time, but the long term effects are increased import of foods, and the daily looming issue of not being able to sustain the inhabitants of the land from their own country.
Cultiv-8 will work within the region on numerous projects implementing a support system and projects that will teach new practices allowing farmers to grow in more natural sustainable manor the produce of which entering the food chain within the country. Every small step to sustainability allows nations to become stronger.
The projects will not only be showcases for the region, it will demonstrate with the right protocol and technologies the most damaged land can be revived. India needs to take the drastic measures to revive and support its agricultural industry because not only will the people in India suffer due to food shortages, the rest of the world will feel the impact 10 fold.
