Background and content

Sudan could be – with its massive untapped land and water potential – the bread basket of the world. Sudan has always been seen as the “largest farm in the world” in the Gezira irrigated Cotton scheme (Mohamed, et al, 2008; Yousif, 1997) and was until recently the biggest producer of Gum Arabic in the world. Sudan also have good access to the sea from many neighbouring countries and therefore, Sudan is also being considered as an investment destination for agricultural investment, particularly from oil-rich Arab countries.

Gum Arabic is a natural exudate obtained from the stems and branches of certain species from the Acacia genus. It is a strategic commodity with several manufacturing applications, as well as in confectionery, beverages, other food industries, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and prebiotic. Gum Arabic is a  gifted commodity for producing countries in Africa due to its probable to generate foreign exchange, promote sustainable development of agriculture and forestry, ensure food security and combat desertification and climate change. It has the potential of playing a critical role in producer countries’ efforts to achieve the 17 SDGs of the 2030 Agenda for SD.

Pedagogical Features:
In keeping with the high standards of books that also serve as texts for student and research audiences this text intends to overcome many of the weaknesses that are ascribable to many texts such as being densely conceptual. These weaknesses have often made them unsuitable for class-room usage at both undergraduate and post graduate levels. This text therefore intends to subscribe to the following pedagogical considerations:

  • Consistency in structure content and general flow will be managed by editors working very closely with contributors to ensure.
  • Each chapter contribution will consist of clearly specified aims/learning objectives, properly defined terms and concepts, illustrations that are of real-life/short cases, relevant end of chapter review questions, useful further readings, etc.
  • The edited text will as a consequence have a clearer positioning and be more market oriented in terms of the targeted audience needs.
