Modernizing Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation: A call to action and partnerships
Pages: 16
Doc type: PDF
Size: 3.0MB

The challenge for Africa to feed itself and become a major food supplier for the world is compounded by climate change and the need to produce healthier, safer, and more nutritious food while producing less waste and fewer greenhouse gases. Yet after more than a decade of progress in reducing hunger in Africa, the number of undernourished is on the rise again. FAO recently reports that 256 million Africans go hungry every day; 93% are in sub-Saharan Africa. As the continent’s population is expected to reach 2 billion by 2050, and considering continued urbanization and climate change, Africa’s ability to feed itself is at great risk unless significant transformations occur across its economy and agricultural sector.

Deployment of Combined Technologies to Smallholder Farmers in Kenya
Pages: 16
Doc type: PDF
Size: 4.74MB

The Clearinghouse has identified opportunities to better respond to the needs of smallholder farmers who always plant multiple crops in mixed cropping systems and integrate them with animal enterprises. Agrodealers serving them must also stock several technologies. However, the work program of TAAT has been designed around Compacts focusing on single value chains or single cross-cutting themes. As the Coordinators of the Maize, Bean, Sweet Potato, Small Livestock and Policy SupportCompacts, and the Technical Adviser of the Youth in Agribusiness Compact are all located in Nairobi, Kenya, the Clearinghouse encouraged the design of combined toolkits to respond to the needs of small-scale farming customers, and for youth groups to capitalize upon agribusiness opportunities from these technologies.
