Dr Steven Sam and Dr Ximena Schmidt, from the Department of Computer Science, establish a new knowledge-based website for sustainable food security in Sierra Leone.

This project, led by Dr Steven Sam in collaboration with Dr Ximena Schmidt aims to establish a new digital platform to sustain and promote food security in Sierra Leone. The platform will consist of videos, images, audio and text which will provide a powerful way to amplify the voices of smallholder farmers and allow them to integrate their knowledge and practices into modern agricultural techniques. This will aim to achieve sustainable, healthy and nutricious food security in Sierra Leone as well as provide food education to promote healthy living in urban and rural communities.
