The Center on Conflict and Development partnered with local research and statistics institutions in Ghana, Liberia and Senegal to conduct an assessment of the state of food security and farm production in these three Sub-Saharan countries. The primary purpose of this exercise was to understand the different farming techniques, farm income levels, food security and socioeconomic indicators that characterize diverse sets of farmers.
The creation of separate, comprehensive profiles based on a broad range of characteristics facilitated the production of highly tailored policy recommendations rather than broad recommendations appropriate for some groups but not others. This study also identified the key drivers of food insecurity and lower income levels for targeted Sub-Saharan African farmers.
