The Dutch ‘gouden driehoek’ (golden triangle) refers to successful partnership in agricultural development between government, sector and knowledge institutes. This has been key in securing food & nutrition in the Netherlands. Could this model be applied to African conditions and be the basis for similar success in relation to food & nutrition security? This report is part of the documentation of an exploration in relation to this question. It explores the global context of agriculture and food systems as well as current and anticipated challenges that these systems will be facing in the future
