Abstract: “The implementation of effective and successful agricultural development strategies that ensure food security in Sub- Saharan Africa represents one of the most crucial issues of the 21st century. African small-scale farmers, who are to a large extentboth poor and vulnerable, are under pressure to produce more and better quality food, but are facing severe difficulties to do so.

These difficulties include lack of infrastructure, management and husbandry problems, the degradation of their natural resource base, weak markets and other socio-economic constraints. Many African farmers are also confronted with challenging biological and environmental constraints including more recently the effects of global climate change.
