The research funded by the BMBF lays the foundation for identifying climate-adapted, resource-saving and, above all, implementable solutions and instruments for sustainable land use in sub-Saharan Africa.

The insights gained together with regional partners from science, administration, politics and business should flow directly into training and further education measures on site in order to improve livelihoods there in the long term and to support the creation of jobs. In particular, the further development of digital formats, such as smart farming, consulting apps, e-learning, decision support systems, plays a decisive role in the sustainable development of rural areas in Africa, which takes into account the ecological, economic and social aspects in equal measure.
