Dr Alvaro Sobrinho, trustee of The Planet Earth Institute, has written several articles underscoring the importance of having sustainable business models in Africa. Sobrinho’s work demonstrates that education, policy, business and environmental awareness need to be integrated in order to achieve a flourishing Africa. For instance, Dr Sobrinho has written both about the need for the provision of high quality PhD level education on the continent, and about the need to train a new generation of socially responsible African leaders. Looking at the agricultural sector in Africa through the lens of Sobrinho’s work yields some fruitful conclusions. Agriculture should be treated as a business, and it should be developed in a sustainable way.
