GlobE-wetlands: Reconciling future food production with environmental protection

The GlobE-wetlands project is an interdisciplinary project dealing with the effects of cropping activities on seasonal wetlands. While wetlands in sub-Saharan Africa are important sites for food production, especially in semi-arid regions, cropping activities may also have negative impacts on the integrity of agro-ecosystems.

Transforming the traditional cassava production systems into a sustainable food security strategy and value added industrial products for rural development

Abstract   Globally between 1980 and 2011 the global area with harvested cassava has expanded by 44% from 13.6 million to 19.6 million ha making it second only to maize but ahead of rice, wheat and potatoes. However, this multipurpose crop, is seriously underutilized in Kenya. It is a plant which can be harvested in ... Read more

Bonn Climate Project; the case for hydrogen

Due to the drastic climate change and its already perceptable consequences which cascade over us daily somewhere in the world, large-scale climate protection combined with development work, is urgently-needed and must start immediately, in many poor countries, which are plagued by world peacethreatening extreme heat, drought, waterd shortage, crop failure, diseases, warfare. For almost all ... Read more

BiomassWeb – Improving food security in Africa through increased system productivity of biomass-based value webs (WP 5.1)

Commonly, post-harvest technology is performed in a one-dimensional chain approach. Most value adding steps in those processing chains are performed in agro-industry. By-products along the processing chain are mostly seen as waste and dumped, which causes environmental problems. However, in a web-approach all parts of a crop can be used, increasing resource use efficiency and ... Read more
