Abstract

The purpose of this investigation is to define the impact of agriculture on African Civilization in the 21st century. The methodology is based on an interdisciplinary big-picture view of the African Civilizations developments and interdependency. Among the findings are: Sub-Saharan Africa’s only every second individual has an access to clean and enough water and electricity therefore agriculture is not productive and cannot reduce poverty and provide living sustainable environment. Practical implication: To develop agriculture as an economic engine for 65 plus nationally employed in this activity, first one must develop Integrated Infrastructure of Agriculture (IIA) at the level of smallholders of farms. At the level of the African continent to coordinate the renewal of African agriculture should be created African Institute for Agricultural Development (AIAD) and African Food and Agriculture Organization (AFAO). Social implication: Addressing the productive environment for small farmers is the prerequisite to plan and implement the modernizing policies for Africa. Originality: This investigation defined the African Civilization’s state of agriculture first at the small and later at big-picture in the 21st century.
