Sustainable intensification of food production through resilient farming systems in West & North Africa

Project description

New management strategies and business models for more efficient farming

Large areas of agricultural land in the west and the north of Africa are heavily degraded, mainly because of unsuitable agronomic systems and inappropriate management. The EU-funded SustInAfrica project aims to empower smallholder farmers, small and medium-sized enterprises and various government and non-governmental organisations in Ghana, Burkina Faso, Niger, Egypt and Tunisia to successfully intensify food production and deliver ecosystem services in a sustainable and resilient manner. The project will strive to attain this by providing a comprehensive analysis of local ecosystems, in addition to offering soil, water and plant health management strategies. It will also provide business models and policies and help develop related technologies that support farmers in their decision making.
