Department of Agriculture. Economic Research Service. Agriculture and Trade Analysis Division.]. Sub-Saharan Africa is home to nearly half of the world’s usable, uncultivated land but so far the continent has not been able to develop these unused tracts to dramatically reduce poverty and boost growth, jobs, and shared prosperity.

    The finding - that this nexus is very much at work in Sub-Saharan Africa - tells us that the design of development efforts must come to reflect this reality. Key links are found in traditional crop and livestock production methods, land tenure systems, women's responsibilities, traditional family planning mechanisms, and methods of forest Author: Cleaver, Kevin Schreiber, Gotz. Women and agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa refers to the agricultural system in Sub-Saharan Africa that is predominantly small-scale farming system with more than 50% of the agricultural activity performed by women, producing about % of the food in this region.

This means that they risk losing access and control over land, often the only asset they have to secure their livelihoods. Access to land is key to eradicating poverty – and not only because it allows farmers to feed their families. Over the past thirty years, most of Sub-Saharan Africa has seen rapid population growth, poor agricultural performance, and increasing environmental degradation.

The major problems continue to be poor economic and agricultural policy, and inadequate public investment in infrastructure, rural education, agricultural services such as.
