Overview

The Strategic Analysis and Knowledge Support System (SAKSS) Network for Southern Africa (SAKSS-SA) was established for two reasons: 1) to promote broader analysis of agricultural investment opportunities for enhancing rural incomes and food security in southern Africa; 2) to promote broader analysis of the impacts of agricultural development programs on the alleviation of poverty and food insecurity in southern Africa; and 3) to build capacity in the region for carrying out such analyses through creation of a “community of practice” among participating researchers, policy makers and development managers.  This program initially targets support for the U.S. Initiative to End Hunger in Africa (IEHA). However, the capabilities developed through this program will ultimately help governments and multiple donors to assess how their development programs can more effectively contribute to meeting the Millennium Challenge Goals of reducing the proportion of people living in hunger and poverty by 50% by the year 2015
