Nowhere are the linkages between climate change, hidden hunger and poverty stronger than in Africa where per capita food
production, vegetable intake and essential food nutrient requirements have steadily declined for the past three decades.
Most of the proteomics diseases such as neurodegenerative disorders, anemia, pneumonia and malaria are still rife with resulting
high rural under-development, under-employment and rural urban migration. Rapid population growth, economic and social
decline is driving forces behind the proteomics diseases and hidden hunger in Africa. This has led to the explosion of city
populations at a rate faster than social services, essential protein food nutrition, infrastructures and employment opportunities
can be provided. Cultures are lost, as dignity and identity are washed away in the hidden tribulations sweeping over the continent.
Too seldom do we consider hidden hunger as causes of these factors in Africa. This situation is to be worsened in the future due to
climatic changes. Summarized are six different drought tolerant proteomics studies spanning two decades that could significantly
improve vegetable protein intake, health, climatic change amelioration and help solve proteomics hidden hunger menace in the
continent. What is needed is commitment to utilize these findings. Governments must come to understand that if they are to
succeed against proteomics war, they must enlist the understanding, then the active co-operation and then the assistance of the
people who are most affected by the menace not only on the international levels, but on local villages and most importantly on
individual family units.
David O. Ojo had contributed modestly to proteomics in Africa and beyond through directing research, extension, project execution, implementation,
assessment, reporting, socio-political, economic as well as agro community development. His research had resulted in over 85 scientific publication
reprints of which had been requested / sorted for by colleagues all around the world and by libraries in advanced countries. He is looking forward
to years of more useful service to global community, especially in sub Saharan Africa and humanity in particular. He has potentials to attain greater
heights and attributes to motivate professional colleagues and sub-ordinates to do the same.
