European Research Council Grant- Contribute to a long-term perspective on human adaptation and establishment of resilient cultivation systems in dry lands

Today, drylands cover over 40% of the Earth’s surface and are home to approximately 2.3 billion people (International Institute for Environment and Development- iied.org). At the beginning of the 1990s, desertification was recognized as one of the main challenges of sustainable development by the United Nations, and in 1994, the United Nation Convention to Combat … Continue reading European Research Council Grant- Contribute to a long-term perspective on human adaptation and establishment of resilient cultivation systems in dry lands

USAID – Feed the Future Innovation Lab – Climate Resilient Sorghum

The drier parts of the world are where development challenges are the greatest and market failure is most acute, and few if any of these are more urgent than the ‘Sahel’ region of Africa. Its unusual tolerance of low inputs, especially water, make the cereal crop sorghum essential to human populations in the Sahel, where episodic drought is a fact of life. Despite its importance, sorghum improvement has lagged that of maize, wheat and rice, largely if not entirely due to greater effort invested in the ‘Big Three’.
