The project ambition

The ambition of this project is to employ presently scattered knowledge to create a coherent, region wide overview of the agricultural systems in the drier parts of the Sahel. By bringing systematic monitoring together with novel, conceptual models for coupled human-environmental systems, we aim at providing policy relevant insight that can foster alternative scenarios for development of resilient livelihood strategies and food security.
