The Observer Research Foundation (ORF), an Indian think tank, published on 23 June 2016 a study titled "India-Africa Partnership for Food Security: Issues, Initiatives and Policy Directions" by Malancha Chakrabarty and Vidisha Mishra, both at ORF.
The paper argues that there is a strong rationale for India-Africa collaboration on food security. India provides low-cost technology solutions, builds capacity, and offers improved seeds and agricultural machinery. The paper argues that India's interest in African agriculture is not driven by its domestic food security concerns. On the contrary, Africa is a huge market for India's growing food and agricultural sector.
