Researchers from an international NGO, the Worldwatch Institute, have spent the past two years traveling through 25 countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

Experts estimate that 265 million people in the region are chronically hungry. But the Worldwatch team has revealed various African agricultural innovations that could help alleviate global hunger in the near future. Darren Taylor reports.
