Food Crisis and Africa's Future Which Political and Economical Impacts?

At the end of 2007 / begining of 2008, many "food riots" burst in several regions in the world. Sub-saharian Africa was particularly concerned. These anger manifestations, which were not only motived by the food issue, had the merit to draw the medias' attention to the more and more worrying problems of the African agricultures and the households' growing difficulty to eat. After the fallout of the major cereals rates on the world markets, these issues were forgotten. But no structural problem has been solved yet.
