The case for Investing on Agricultural Development according to Gates

Excellent read to understand the need for increased attention for ag development on foreign aid circles. From Gate's Agricultural Development Strategy
  • What issues affect the most people but receive the least attention and resources?
  • What are the most effective ways to help large numbers of people overcome hunger and poverty?
  • Where can we have impact over time that is scalable and sustainable—environmentally and economically?
Time and again, the answer was agriculture.
