Book DescriptionIs the future of Africa full of gloom and doom or is there a glimpse of hope on the horizon? Rather than debate this issue, Dr. Florence Wambugu gives you a hands-on answer in her book Modifying Africa: How Biotechnology Can Benefit the Poor and Hungry; a Case Study From Kenya. She demonstrates how a simple agricultural technology transfer project is helping to break the backbone of poverty and famine.

In Africa, the continent where Dr. Wambugu was born, more than 5,000 peopledie each day from lack of food. Over 30 million children do not have the required nutrition to live a normal healthy life.

Faced with this grim situation, it is refreshing to see how a simple technology can transform the lives of thousands of poorfarmers, who then in turn transform their communities. In Dr. Wambugu’s book Modifying Africa, she writes about real life stories of people who have benefited from planting tissue culture, or clean planting banana seedlings from the lab. Ifthis simple form of technology can change the lives of people, imagine how other sophisticated technologies, such as agribiotech, could possibly transform whole countries? The possibilities are endless.

Modifying Africa is about the nuts and bolts of technology transfer to communities far removed from science and technology. It takes you through a journey that will leave you convinced that through technology, poverty and hunger can be defeated once and for all.
