Addressing Fast Population Growth and Food Price Rise in Angola

The pressing challenge in Angola involves the rapid growth of its population at a rate of 3.27%. This demographic expansion, coupled with the escalating prices of food, necessitates a prompt response to ensure food security and stability in the country.

Advanced Grain Farming for Food Independence

  • Advanced Grain Farm Establishment: The project seeks to establish a cutting-edge grain farm spanning 2,000 hectares. This farmland will focus on producing essential crops such as corn and soybeans, which are pivotal for both human and animal consumption.
  • Irrigation and Farming Techniques: Out of the total area, 1,300 hectares will be efficiently irrigated using central pivots, while the remaining portion will be cultivated through dry farming. The adoption of modern and sustainable irrigation and farming techniques will optimize production.
  • State-of-the-Art Infrastructure: The project includes the implementation of state-of-the-art machinery, a logistics center with necessary facilities for farmer support, equipped silos with dryers for efficient grain storage, warehouses, and robust water supply and energy systems.
  • Comprehensive Training: A comprehensive training program will be offered to local personnel, equipping them with the skills required to operate and manage the advanced machinery and facilities effectively.


Economic Growth, Food Security, and Skills Development

  • Food Security and Price Stability: By establishing an advanced grain farm, the project will contribute significantly to addressing the rising food prices. The production of staple crops like soy and corn will enhance food security and stabilize local food prices.
  • Economic and Proximity Development: The initiative aligns with the goal of achieving food independence and supporting economic development. The proximity of the farm to local communities will create work opportunities and provide valuable experience in large-scale cultivation.
  • Local Employment: The project’s implementation will create a substantial number of job opportunities, benefitting the local population and contributing to the socioeconomic growth of the area.
  • Capacity Building: The comprehensive training provided to local personnel will not only ensure the successful operation of the farm but will also contribute to the development of a skilled workforce in modern agricultural practices.
