Is there any “Common Wealth” in the Commonwealth Windrush Generation?  Caribbean Development Lecture Series: A future without agriculture? Should Caribbean states abandon agriculture in favour of other economic sectors?


Over the course of the 20th century the viability of agriculture in the Caribbean has been undermined and put under pressure from external forces. In response to these challenges many Caribbean countries over the last 30 years have increasingly started to shift away from dependence on agriculture. This has presented new opportunities for growth but constraints in food production and independence. In this lecture Lyndon Mukasa will explore the value of agricultural production to Caribbean Nations and interrogate the causes in the shift away from agriculture in the region. Is the shift away from agriculture inevitable? Should measures be placed in order to prevent it? What are the possible consequences of not preserving domestic food production in the region?
