dc.description.abstract Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) continues to face persistent rural poverty, deepening food insecurity, and declining natural resource base and associated ecosystems services. These trends continue to undermine the ability of the rural poor to adapt to varying and changing climatic conditions and these trends may be of concern today and perhaps into the far future unless governments and other partners in the region adopt more aggressive food security enhancement innovations based on existing opportunities. Such opportunities would include the presence of large pool of diversity agricultural crops, agricultural innovations including technologies and management practices, and diversity of ecosystems and associated services. It is estimated that over 315 million or in other words, one in every three persons in SSA live on less than one dollar a day. en
