- This is an empirically rich, theoretically grounded and timely analysis of an important aspect of the political economy of South-South relations. -Seifudein Adem, Professor, Graduate School of Global Studies, Doshisha University, Japan. This book makes a valuable contribution in outlining ways for India and Africa to work together towards ensuring greater food security. -Philani Mthembu, Executive Director, Institute for Global Dialogue, University of South Africa, Pretoria, South Africa. This volume showcases the ongoing trends and challenges in South-South cooperation between India and select countries in Africa, for achieving food security and poverty reduction. Scholars and practitioners share diverse perspectives on the role of Indias development compact; aid, trade, private sector driven Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs), and concessional Lines of Credit (LOCs) to the agricultural and agro-processing sectors in Africa. India- Africa cooperation also underscores that the sharing of knowledge and capabilities -technical and financial, along with North- South partnerships- through trilateral and multilateral mechanisms, can upscale the agriculture and agro-processing sectors, address the food security agenda, and reduce poverty. The axial questions in this volume explore how cooperation between India and countries in Africa impact intra-South trading, capacity building, and the investment landscape.
