Poster: Varietal selection in Madagascar & the use of OFSP for disaster response

Every year, many regions in Madagascar are affected by floods, droughts, frost and locusts. They destroy many crops and increase food and nutrition insecurity. As part of climate-smart agriculture, several projects, NGOs and ministries choose sweetpotato to enhance resilience. Promoting high yielding and nutrient rich crops such as orange-fleshed sweetpotatoes (OFSP) could contribute to the improvement of the health and livelihoods of vulnerable people.
