20. Vegetarian Activity in the Developing World
Mr Morkel of South Africa felt that efforts should be made to develop vegetarianism in the Developing World. It was decided that the resources of I.V.U. are not sufficient for any sustained campaign. Local contacts are necessary and it was decided that initial contacts within a continent should be made internally and specific aid sought from I.V.U. to develop the work when development seemed likely.

21. Resources and Information on Vegetarianism in Africa
It was decided that the problems were similar to those mentioned in the previous minute and that it would be better dealt with through communication between vegetarian groups in Africa.
