‘Transforming African agriculture through sustainable intensification’
Sustainable intensification of mixed crop livestock systems is a key pathway towards better food security, improved livelihoods and a healthy environment. As part of the US government’s Feed the Future initiative to address hunger and food security issues in sub-Saharan Africa, the US Agency for International Development (USAID) is supporting three multi-stakeholder agricultural research projects to sustainably intensify key African farming systems. These are intended to catalyze concerted research and action by governments and donor agencies around pressing issues.
This website reports on the activities of these projects which form a Program: ‘Africa Research in Sustainable Intensification for the Next Generation – Africa RISING.’
