Factors Affecting Food Shortage in Sub-Saharan African: Case of Benin, Burkina and Niger

Mohamed Nasser BACO

Abstract: The issue of food shortage is recurrent in Sub-Saharan African and drives several resources each year. Despite local, national and regional policy to end famine in this region of the world, little has been done because thousands of families continue to experience more than six months of food shortage. This study aimed to estimate and explain the parameters affecting food shortage in Sub-Saharan African by using linear regression. It reveals that practice of microdose and fallow, education, number of meal eat per day, household size and size of farm cultivated determine food shortage length in Benin, Burkina-Faso and Niger.

Keywords: cereals, food shortage, microdose, Sub-Saharan African
