Confronting Drought in Africa's Drylands: Opportunities for Enhancing Resilience (Africa Development Forum)

Confronting Drought in Africa's Drylands: Opportunities for Enhancing Resilience (Africa Development Forum) by Raffaello Cervigni
English | May 9, 2016 | ISBN: 1464808171 | 299 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

Drylands represent the front line in the battle for poverty eradication and resource conservation in Africa. While we know that millions of people in drylands are exposed to the threat of land degradation and periodically fall victim to droughts and other shocks, actions to address these challenges have been fragmented, too many times prompted only by humanitarian crises, and in the end largely inadequate. This book provides a solid, evidence-based assessment of the potential for the many interventions that can improve crop and livestock production and allow better stewardship of natural resources, thereby significantly lowering the numbers of people exposed to risk.

Roads are the arteries through which the economy pulses. They connect sellers to markets, workers to jobs, students to education, and the sick to hospitals. Yet much of the developing world, Africa in particular, lacks adequate transportation infrastructure. Accordingly investments in transportation remain a cornerstone of the development agenda. Sub-Saharan Africa spends roughly $6.8 billion per year on paving roads, and the World Bank invests more on roads than on education, health, and social services combined.
