Small farms under stress play a huge role for Africa: smallholder agriculture and emerging global challenges
The Nordic Africa Institute, Agrarian Change, Property and Resources.
2014 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Widespread poverty as well as food and income insecurity plague Africa’s dominant smallholder agriculture. Paradoxically, the very people who mainly depend on agriculture are not able to secure their own food and nutrition needs. Today, three-quarters of Africa’s malnourished children and the majority of people living in absolute poverty are found among the smallholder farmers who are key to the development of the continent.
