Increasing resilience and reducing vulnerability in sub-Saharan African agriculture: Strategies for risk coping and management

Topics: Food and Agriculture,

This paper discusses the stresses and factors that negatively effect the agricultural sector in sub-Saharan Africa. These include climate change, natural disasters, regional conflicts, the effects of globalization and policy shocks, and how these interact to increase vulnerability and reduce resilience. It also identifies four domains that farm agents can focus on to increase their resilience: income and asset management strategies, farm production strategies, government programs and support strategies, and technological development strategies.
