The Howard G. Buffett Foundation Chair on Conflict and Development at Texas A&M has partnered with local research and statistics institutions in Liberia, Ghana, and Senegal to conduct an assessment of the state of food security and farm production in the three Sub-Saharan countries. The primary purpose of this exercise is to understand the different farming techniques, farm income levels, food security and socioeconomic indicators that characterize diverse sets of farmers. Creating separate, comprehensive profiles based on a broad range of characteristics facilitates highly tailored policy recommendations rather than broad recommendations that may be appropriate for some groups but not others. The study will also identify the key drivers of food insecurity and lower income levels for targeted Sub-Saharan African farmers.
