As part of an ongoing partnership with IFAD to raise the voices and concerns of smallholder farmers in West and Central Africa, IPS Africa is reporting this week from the IFAD regional forum in Banjul. A bi-lingual English / French TerraViva publication will be shared with all the delegates, telling the stories of young farmers from across the region. Features on new cassava varieties, continuing food security concerns, coffee production, solar power and irrigation schemes, and urban farming are contributed from Yaounde, Dakar, Kampala, Ouagadougou and Abidjan.
The latest stories are also available to read on your mobile phone using the www.ipsnews.net address.
