      The Evans School Policy Analysis & Research Group (EPAR), in partnership with the MasterCard Foundation, conducted a review of evidence on the impact of financial products on measures of production, consumption, wealth, and resilience, with a focus on rural and agricultural populations in Sub-Saharan Africa. We reviewed 38 high-quality studies.   Maize (Zea mays L.) is one of the commonly grown grain crops and remains a source of staple food and food security for most countries in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). But climate change threatens agricultural potential in SSA thereby risking food security especially that most maize production is rain-fed in these countries. Thus, numerous studies have examined impacts of climate . Working with various partners across sub-Saharan Africa, we improve livelihoods, enhance food and nutrition security, increase employment, and preserve natural resource integrity. IITA is a member of CGIAR, a global agriculture research partnership for a food-secure future. Learn more. Contact. Katherine Lopez IITA Head of Communication.
