Research Highlights

This tool helps users to identify specific sites within the SAGCOT (Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania) area where new irrigation investments should target at 10 km spatial resolution.

This tool visualizes the long-term (1960-2014) gridded monthly precipitation, near-surface temperature, and Palmer Drought Severity Index time series for sub-Saharan Africa summarized across districts.

We clarify the terminology surrounding yield gaps, show that closing yield gaps is not necessarily economic, and conclude that food security will be better served by policies that directly enhance the productive capacity of agriculture to supply affordable food efficiently and sustainably.

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.

We estimate global wheat losses over the past 50 years absent investments in research to limit impacts of stem rust and discuss how this can inform decisions about “right-sizing” research investments.

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