Call for participants: 100 critical research questions for decision-makers in sub-Saharan Africa

Sub-Saharan Africa faces major challenges around agriculture, food security and water access over the next half century. To address these effectively, decision-makers must have access to the most current and relevant information available. In an effort to help meet this need, SENTINEL (Social and Environmental Trade-offs in African Agriculture) is partnering with a team of researchers at the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) in a horizon scanning activity aimed at gathering insights on “achieving food and nutrition security, reducing inequality, and preserving terrestrial ecosystems.” Horizon scanning is a comprehensive approach that provides a platform for all to voice their views on factors driving future change. This activity involves asking a wide range of stakeholders to highlight important questions, the answers to which will shape the future of agricultural research in sub-Saharan Africa. The aim of this activity is to define 100 critical research questions for decision-makers across the region.

If you are an individual or organization involved or working in sub-Saharan Africa, you can contribute by sending in your proposed research questions. Find out more here:
