Introducing Africa south of the Sahara Food Security Portal


by Sara Gustafson | June 29, 2016

Africa south of the Sahara Food Security Portal, launched in 2015 and facilitated by IFPRI, is a clearinghouse for food security- and nutrition-related data, research, and news at both the regional and the national level. A thematic blog provides the latest publications and analysis on topics like food access and consumption, risk and resilience, input markets, nutrition, climate change, and trade policies. The site also includes an interactive map feature that tracks wholesale commodity prices, fertilizer prices, market access indicators, and more. Virtual dialogues give users the chance to engage with other experts and policymakers and share ideas about important regional food security issues.
