By 2030, the United Nations (UN), and its agency, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) hope to have achieved Sustainable Development Goal 2—end extreme hunger in the world. As of 2017, an estimated 821 million people globally are facing extreme hunger. The bulk of this group lives in Sub-Saharan Africa, where 237 million people were undernourished. In Northeast Nigeria alone, 2019 saw an estimated 2.6 million people left severely food insecure due to the insurgency and conflict1.
Climate change, poor farming practices and the nonexistence of sustainable partnerships and support systems all contribute to the growing cases of low crop yield. Most farmers do not have access to the right kind of information, and where they have information, they lack sustainable support to implement them.
