The area is highly vulnerable to climate change, with temperatures increasing 1.5 times faster than the global average and intense periods of rainfall and drought growing more extreme. Armed conflict and economic shocks have also risen, making both development and peace some of the region’s biggest challenges. African Agriculture, Inc. (AAGR) aims to address these issues by transforming the Sahel’s beef and dairy industries through the production of animal feed, specifically alfalfa. A 2,000-year-old crop, alfalfa is also one of the highest yielding vegetation-based protein crops.
