Sudan could be the bread-basket of the world: lessons unlearned

Editor: Allam Ahmed, Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU), University of Sussex, UK

This book aims to address the question of how Sudan can realises its potential to be the breadbasket of the world and at least feed its own people.  In doing so, the book will critically analyse the potential for the growth of Sudan’s agricultural and animal sectors, what are the lessons unlearned from the failed attempts to develop Sudan as a breadbasket of the world in the 1970s and what are the challenges for realising its potential, so that Sudan can become, if not an agricultural power, at least an exporter of food, and thus cease to rank among the poorest countries in the world. The book puts together, for the first time, original and cutting-edge contributions aimed at illuminating and charting new directions for researching, teaching and understanding of this subject matter.
