Hunger and the Issue of Agricultural Productivity in Congo

Mayéko Léon

Abstract


In the Congo agricultural techniques of agricultural households base agricultural productivity on the physical aptitudes of the members of these households. In rural areas, however, the hunger affects a large majority of households, especially households headed by households in an agricultural industry. Improving agricultural productivity in this situation is a crucial issue as household members no longer consume the required calories.

Ordinary least squares regression has yielded results that indicate that an increase in the number of undernourished people has a negative impact on agricultural productivity.
