Increasing agricultural production to meet rapidly growing demand for food – expected to more than double in sub-Saharan Africa by 2050 – while safeguarding vital ecosystem services and promoting social equality, lies at the heart of sustainable development.

Over four years, 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 vital ecosystem functions and without worsening social inequality.
