The paper reiterates a key conclusion of IFAD’s 2011 Rural Poverty Report: the ability of SSA’s smallholder farmers to increase on-farm investments in productivity is constrained by their capacity to manage the risk-return trade-offs in moving towards intensified agriculture.

However, even this longer-term, non-farm strategy means that present day smallholders must upgrade their systems to achieve food security and consistently earn enough income from farm sales to pay for children’s nutritional needs and education. One of the most limiting factors that pose a major challenge in livestock production in extensive systems of farming in the semi-arid areas of southern Africa is insufficient quality feed.
