Could they be transformed by intensive farming, just as the thickets of the cerrado have given way to !elds of soya that transformed Brazil from a food importer to one of the world’s great breadbaskets? That was the thought behind Prosavana, aprogramme bringing Brazilian and Japanese expertise to Mozambique.
