Research Highlights

Through open access global and household datasets, pseudo-panels, spatial data analytics and communities of practice, data are increasingly available to support investment portfolios designed to enhance the resilience of vulnerable populations in the Horn of Africa.

Authors use crop and impact models to examine which current and potential agricultural technologies offer solutions to fight hunger.

The purpose of this series of country briefs is to provide a comprehensive and standardized view of agricultural characteristics integrat- ed with socioeconomic variables across countries.
