Yet the challenge to provide food security to all is not new and has been a common struggle throughout our past. By looking back, we can see how things have developed and use our knowledge to think in different ways and open up new possibilities for the future of our food system.

From early agriculture to future farming - News - Nature Middle East

A new study of a 10,000-year old site in the Sahara has shed light on how humans in the area managed undomesticated food plants. Around 7500 BC, the climate of the Sahara shifted. Wet, rainy conditions transformed the desert into a savanna known as the ‘green Sahara’. The savanna lasted for roughly 4,000 years before the climate dried and the desert returned. By studying the remains of human settlements in the green Sahara, archaeologists and archaeobotanists learn how hunter-gatherers and pastoralists lived in the area and how they coped with and contributed to the region’s environmental changes.
