Summary

The third edition of the continental conference (3AOC) is holding in Nigeria October 5 – 9, 2015 with the theme “Achieving Social and Economic Development Through Ecological and Organic Agricultural Alternatives”. This conference is coming up in the continent when the call for need to improve rural livelihoods of Africans is becoming louder by the day. A veritable tool through which the livelihood of an average African can be improved is Organic Agriculture because it has an inherent potential to reduce production costs regularly incurred by small-medium scale farmers (principal actors in African agriculture), reduce debts, increase income, mitigate the vagaries of climate change, cope with market fluctuations, sustain soil fertility, minimize health hazards etc.
It is envisaged that the 3AOC will provide an excellent platform to exchange ideas on the role ecological and organic agricultural alternatives can play in achieving social and economic development in the continent.
The 3AOC scientific track is hereby documented as Book of Proceedings.
