EVENT FRAMEWORK
The African continent is rich in natural resources. A high percentage population is engaged in food production. In addition, about 70% of people live on agriculture, with women accounting for 60 to 80% of food produced and traded. Agriculture thus plays a catalytic role in driving African growth and wealth sharing. According to NEPAD data, the African continent is home to 65% of the planet's uncultivated fertile land, 10% of the continent's renewable freshwater resources and agricultural production has grown 160% in the last 30 years.

Africa currently has about 1.3 billion inhabitants, representing 17% of the world's population. However, studies predict that number will reach 4.5 billion by 2100, the equivalent of 40% of the world's population by the end of this century. This is mainly because the African continent is experiencing a declining mortality rate and a rising birth rate, with direct implications for both food supply and food security.

The agricultural sector in West Africa, where Cabo Verde is located, is both a challenge and an opportunity for regional development and for projecting the region's economy globally. The West African economic bloc, consisting of 15 member states, about 400 million inhabitants, with very heterogeneous characteristics and a strong agricultural presence in their economies, has high potential for the development of agro-businesses and related industries. The private sector is dominated by micro and small companies and the population is predominantly young, thus facing the region with relevant challenges of internationalization of its companies. On the other hand, the digitization of the economy is still at an embryonic phase, despite the high penetration rate, with great potential for short-term economic development.

To overcome the poor performance of the region's agricultural sector, substantial use of fertilizers is a prerequisite for successful efforts to improve agricultural productivity, thus addressing the growing challenge of meeting people’s food need, in terms of both quantity and quality. In June 2006, African leaders met in Abuja, Nigeria, with the goal of taking measures commensurate with the importance of fertilizers for an African Green Revolution. The main outcome of this summit, the Abuja Declaration on Fertilizers for an African Green Revolution, confirmed the commitment of African Heads of State to achieve a rapid increase in fertilizer use on the continent, raising the average of 9 kg / ha in 2006 to at least 50 kg / ha in 2015. The Declaration also set out concrete actions and measures to accelerate the availability and accessibility of fertilizers on the continent, an objective that has not been achieved to date.

Average fertilizer consumption in Africa is 10 kg / ha, equivalent to 10% of the world average, almost 20 times less than the Asian average (191 kg / ha) and 9 times less than the Latin American average (94 kg / ha). Poor use of fertilizers in Africa is mainly due to two factors: the high price of fertilizers in view of farmers' purchasing power and the lack of alternatives offered to producers and farmers.

Over the last decades, relevant applied research centres, universities and governments have been looking for viable alternatives to traditional chemical fertilizers, aiming at increasing agricultural profitability, food quality and environmental protection. The application of basalt powder in agriculture and basalt fibre in industry has proved to be a solution to the challenges facing contemporary society, both now and in the future. It is in this context that Cabo Verde will host in 2020 an international event with the motto BASALT, THE WEALTH OF NATIONS.

The event is structured in three components. The first component is an International Conference focusing on the application of basalt powder in agriculture and basalt fibre in industry, lasting two days: 23 and 24 March 2020. The second component is focused on scientific research and funding of research-related activities and lasts for one day: 25 March 2020). Finally, the third component is a two-day Business Forum: 26 and 27 March 2020.

THE CURRENT STATE OF THE RESEARCH OF THE USE OF BASALT POWDER AND THE CONSOLIDATION OF ITS APPLICATION IN AGRICULTURE

BRAZIL as a Case Study on the application of basalt powder in Agriculture:
Currently, the use of basalt powder in Brazilian agriculture is considered a credible alternative to traditional chemical fertilizers, and practical results prove this fact. Brazil is one of the countries in the world that relies heavily on the external market to meet its domestic needs in relation to the main nutrients for agriculture, either from the perspective of plant protection against pests and fungi or from the perspective of increasing agricultural productivity and profitability. In fact, according to EMBRAPA data from 2014, Brazil occupies a prominent place in the consumption and import of chemical fertilizers. The country is the fourth largest consumer of NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium, respectively).

In the Cerrado region, a transboundary area of sub-continental size with an area of about 2 million km2 and which includes savannah, seasonal forest and field, the application of basalt powder in agriculture is strategic, since it incorporates a great potential for soil fertilization, as the Latosols, dominant in the agricultural areas of the region, have low natural fertility.

The use of basalt powder in Brazil:

1) The search for alternatives to the importation of fertilizers;

2) The need to exploit wastes from mining activities; and

3) Expansion of the cultivation area based on agro-ecological concepts and with restrictions on the use of soluble fertilizers.

One of the main advantages obtained by plants for the use of basalt powder is the availability of nutrients, especially those with low soil mobility. It is also worth mentioning other benefits such as expansion of the area of exploration and root absorption, temporary storage of nutrients, favouring of beneficial microorganisms and mitigation of the adverse factors of pH and excess metals in the soil. Non-nutritional effects, such as the improvement in soil aggregation and elevation in water efficiency, production and accumulation of growth substances, should be mentioned as well.

In order to reduce its external dependence on this type of imported material, Brazil has accumulated more than 15 years of experience and practical results in the application of basalt powder in agriculture and accumulates more than 20 years of research experience in this field, benefiting from the research of prominent institutions and numerous academic theses in this area.

For see OBJECTIVES, please click here   

Research is the process by which man seeks solutions that serve as the basis for building the progress of humanity. In this sense, research is the result of human curiosity, the need to know and explain nature. Thus, research has been a fundamental instrument for the progress of humanity.

For nations, especially the younger ones, having a team of experienced and well-prepared scientists and researchers is an ongoing challenge, taking generations to create the conditions for the establishment of an internationally recognized body of researchers. In this sense, the Workshop on “Challenges and Opportunities in Scientific Research, Technology and Innovation” has the following objectives:

»Take advantage, enhance and value the presence in Cabo Verde of some of the leading international researchers in different fields, coming from prestigious university institutions and centers of research and technological development in Europe, Africa, Brazil and Canada, which on the occasion of the International Conference will be present in the country to share experiences.

»Present the state of the art of research and application of basalt powder in agriculture and basalt fibre in industry.

»Define and adopt strategies to promote basalt powder application technology in agriculture so that it can be taken as an appropriate medium for environmental sustainability and agricultural production to meet the needs of the internal and regional market, in particular to meet the needs of family farming throughout the ECOWAS space and in Africa in general.

»Promote the creation of a network of researchers involving universities, research and development centres, business associations and companies involved, both in research projects and programmes and in the marketing of basalt powder for agriculture and basalt fibre for industry.
