Investing in sustainable agriculture in the countries of Africa was at the centre of a series of presentations organised by “Junge DLG” at the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart/Germany.

A large number of students from Southern Germany’s University of Hohenheim as well as guests from outside the university had been invited to this year’s series of presentations organised by “Junges DLG-Team Hohenheim”. Under the heading “Government or Private? Sustainable Investment in African Agricultural Development”, four professional and academic experts discussed possible approaches to sustainable agricultural development on the African continent.

It already became apparent in the welcome address given by Florian Männer, who heads the Junge DLG-Team Hohenheim, that agricultural development is in fact a very wide-reaching field. Professor Ralf Vögele, Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural Science at the University of Hohenheim, stressed the significance of agricultural development in the countries of Africa in his welcome address, adding that the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals could only be achieved with sustainable development in agriculture.

Regina Birner, who holds the Chair of Social and Institutional Change in Agricultural Development at the University of Hohenheim, asked what was more sustainable, investing in smallholders or in large-scale farms, viewing this issue from the angle of science.
