I'll state my case, of which I'm certain

Two weeks ago I went to a conference in Cape Town to present some of the work I do on identifying African success stories of agrifood marketing chains that are inclusive of smallholder farmers.

I was put on the spot there by an unexpected question in a plenary session of the conference. Not satisfied with the response I gave, I had the opportunity to think more about it during my solo ascension of Table Mountain: 2 hours up from the city side, 20 minutes sandwich lunch break on the summit with the two-oceans view from Maclear's Beacon and 3 hours down into the Kirstenbosch botanical gardens.

The result: read about why I have gone into agriculture and agribusiness here.
