Minimum emission pathways to triple Africa’s cereal production by 2050

Research output: Book/ReportReportAcademic

Abstract

This info note summarizes results of three recent studies that assessed whether SSA can be self-sufficient in cereals by 2050 under different scenarios of intensification on existing cereal area. For each scenario,yield increases and area expansion to meet cereal demand by 2050 were assessed. Increased demands for fertiliser use and associated GHG emissions were quantified.
