      The question whether sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) can be self-sufficient in cereals by is of global relevance. Currently, SSA is amongst the (sub)continents with the largest gap between cereal consumption and production, whereas its projected tripling demand between and is much greater than in other continents. We show that nearly complete closure of the gap between current Cited by:   Why Sub-Saharan Africa?
