Development in Africa depends mostly on agricultural production. The recent positive changes that occurred in the African continent after the mid-1990s , have encouraged donor countries and development agencies to increase crop productivity through what is now known as “the New African Green revolution. It is based on the intensification of crop productivity through application of chemical fertilizers and seeds. In an innovative way farmers and pastoral nomads of the Sudan have increased the resource-base through integration of livestock and crop production. Such cooperation between the two groups has increased income and food production, reducing poverty, enhances food security and mitigates climate change.
