Annan to head Green Revolution

Former UN secretary-general and Nobel Peace Laureate Kofi Annan has been appointed the first chairman of the Alliance for a Green Revolution.

The organization, based in the Kenyan capital Nairobi seeks to help millions of small-scale farmers and their families across Africa to lift themselves and their families out of poverty and hunger through sustainable increases in farm productivity and incomes.

The Accra Daily Mail also has an excellent, in-depth piece on the story.
