Sustainable Intensification of Food Production in the Horn of Africa
By 2050 global agricultural output will need to increase by 60% on current levels to meet demand for food. Agricultural output on such a scale will put an increased strain on resources such as water. Lack of fresh water supply for agriculture is becoming an acute problem. Arid regions such as the Persian Gulf, Mediterranean, and the Horn of Africa have long faced problems with water scarcity in agriculture. Seawater Greenhouse Ltd is collaborating with Aston University, and PENHA with support from Innovate UK and DFID on a new project in the Horn of Africa.
