520    Africa urgently needs a uniquely African Green Revolution-
       a revolution that is long overdue, a revolution that will 
       help the continent in its quest for dignity and peace   
       Mr. Kofi Annan, Former Secretary General of the United 
       Nations (UN), currently the Board Chair of Alliance for a 
       Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA)   Research work on soil 
       in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) has generated numerous outputs
       but very few have been translated into adoption to improve
       the livelihoods of the smallholder farmers. This is the 
       greatest challenge Africa needs to address in order to 
       achieve the highly sought after green revolution   Andre 
       Bationo Soil Health Specialist, Alliance for a Green 
       Revolution in Africa (AGRA), Accra, Ghana     An African 
       Green Revolution can apply the power of knowledge and 
       technology with an environmental touch: disseminating many
       crop varieties that will thrive in diverse conditions; 
       improving soil health through integrated soil fertility 
       management; and developing technologies that maximize the 
       use of rainwater, deliver small-scale irrigation and 
       mitigate against impacts of unfavourable and changing 
       climatic conditions.
