La production alimentaire par habitant semble, depuis trois ans,

étre tombée au-dessous du niveau d'avant-guerre. Les statistiques de production relatives aux cultures alimentaires essentielles et aux produits du betail en Afrique comportent une marge d'erreur considérable de sorte que ces données ne peuvent être considerées au mieux que comme des indications approximatives des tendances qui se sent probablèment exercées.

Africa

The rate of increase of agricultural production, and especially food production, in Africa appears to have slowed down in the last few years. For 1959/60, the latest season for which data are available, provisional estimates indicate that there was a slight fall in production from the level of the previous year. On a per caput basis, food production appears to have fallen below the prewar level for the last three years.
