Jihen Chandoul, a member of the Post-Colonialisms Today Working Group, discusses the impact of import-dependency on African food supply chains since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Closures of land, sea, and air borders have resulted in a dramatic decline in imported goods, the main source of food supply in Africa. Lessons can be found in the policies of early post-independence African governments, which recognized the importance of food self-sufficiency, both to ensure a stable food supply chain and as a necessary condition to protect their sovereignty.
