If you have questions about this aid arises, please visit the official source and ask your questions directly to the center.

West African smallholder farming systems are complex, dynamic systems with many interacting bio-physical subcomponents. The location of farm-households within different agro-ecological zones determines not only their cropping decisions, but also the magnitude and quality of changes in climate conditions. The combined effects across farm-types and agro-ecological zones within certain districts are likely to cause temporal shortages of agricultural commodities on the respective markets, thus affecting also non-rural parts of the society.
