Tanzania’s The Citizen, one of the leading English daily newspapers in Dar es Salaam, published a Nourishing the Planet op-ed authored by co-project Director Danielle Nierenberg and Abdou Tenkouano, director of the AVRDC – The World Vegetable Centre’s Regional Centre for Africa in Arusha, and the author of ‘The Nutritional Economic Potential of Vegetables,’ in the upcoming State of the World 2011: Innovations that Nourish the Planet.
The article discusses how well-adapted, but often ignored, indigenous crops will be vital for small farmers in the face of a changing climate that tests the hardiness and drought tolerance of the crops we grow for food.
