03/05/2016 - Every year, Africa imports one third of global rice production, with West Africa alone importing nearly 20% (5.2 million tonnes). By 2020, if domestic production continues to be outstripped by growing demand, Africa will need an extra 17 million tonnes of husked rice, costing several billion in already rare foreign exchange. Any increase in the price of rice on the international market will have a negative impact on food security, particularly for poor households.
