FoodSTART Africa. Strengthening nutrition in agri-food systems in East and Southern Africa through root and tuber crops. Project profile.

Roots and tubers have great potential to support food security and resilient livelihoods among the poorest and most vulnerable people around the globe. The FoodSTART program, which promotes production and marketing of these underexploited crops, has already proven highly successful in Asia, and this project will extend the benefits to poor farming families in sub-Saharan Africa.
