AWARD Director Dr. Wanjiru Kamau-Rutenberg speaks about investing in female scientists to feed Africa in this video interview with SciDev.net. She outlines the daunting challenge facing Africa: to rapidly expand agricultural production so that the continent can feed itself. Women currently produce the majority of Africa’s food but are severely underrepresented in agricultural research and development. Kamau-Rutenberg argues that it is therefore imperative to invest in female researchers. Only by fully using this resource will Africa be able to meet its food needs.
