A History of Water: Series III, Volume 3 : Water and Food Hardback

Edited by Terje Tvedt, Terje Oestigaard


Major changes in policy and management , across the entire agricultural production chain, will be needed to ensure the best use of available water resources in meeting growing demands for food and other agricultural products. This new volume in the successful History of Water Series focuses on the African continent to address this key issue. Humanity has its roots in Africa and many of our food systems developed there.

All types of agricultural production are present and the sheer size of the continent offers wide ecological variation from extreme desert to dense rainforest.

Drawing together leading international contributors from a wide variety of disciplines Water and Food offers new insights into the evolution of food systems, from early hunter gatherers to the global challenges of the modern world.
