Increasing agricultural production to meet rapidly growing demand for food – a 150 per cent increase by 2050 – while safeguarding vital ecosystem services and promoting social equality, lies at the heart of sustainable development.

Over four years (2017-2021), SENTINEL aims to understand the challenges, trade-offs and synergies inherent in working towards these development goals in sub-Saharan Africa.

That knowledge will help governments and policy makers to make better-informed decisions about land use and agricultural practices so that food security can be improved without losing precious biodiversity and without worsening social inequality.
