Improving food security in Africa through increased system productivity of biomass-based value webs

This project looks into the provision concepts on how Sub-Saharan Africa may increase food availability through biomass for both food and non-food purposes in the next two decades or more. The project focuses on addressing three pillars of food security; food availability, through enhanced biomass productivity; access to food, through income generation from non-food biomass production, processing and trading; and use of food, through increasing nutritional quality.

As part of this project, INBAR manages a dedicated work package on bamboo biomass, which seeks to develop and test agroforestry systems that meet multiple community needs for income generation, energy and improved nutrition.
