Feeding Cities in the Horn of Africa

In 2002, I had the privilege of being invited by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) to do some work on a forum in Addis Ababa entitled “Feeding Cities in the Horn of Africa”. A report of the workshop involving local authorities, researchers and representatives from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors is available for downloading here. The workshop was based on some earlier work in a report produced in the year 2000 available here. Furthermore, a CD-Rom was produced with various other documents including, for example, some wonderful photographs taken by Olivio Argenti of FAO, some of which I have uploaded below. Visiting the ancient land of Abyssinia and birthplace of our species was a dream come true and I hope to go back to visit again some day.
