Improved Crop Productivity for Africa’s Drylands


The World Bank and other partners launched the study on “Confronting Drought in Africa’s Drylands: Opportunities for Enhancing Resilience,” whose objective was to set out a practical framework for understanding vulnerability and resilience in drylands, as a way of informing the design of policies and programs to that can help break the recurrent cycle of crises that for years have plagued the drylands. This book, one of several prepared as thematic background pieces to inform the larger study, focuses on the potential for improvements in dryland crop productivity to play an influential role in improving households’ adaptive capacity to manage drought.
