The article features Alabaster International's work on the Enset Food Security Initiative, aimed at exploring the adaptability and viability of Enset (Ensete ventricosum) as a regional food security crop in Ethiopia and Kenya. This collaborative effort involves research institutions and NGOs, focusing on developing tissue culture protocols for Enset, a drought-resistant crop indigenous to Ethiopia. Highlighting Enset's potential as a sustainable food source, the initiative also emphasizes the crop's role in supporting women and smallholder farmers, enhancing food sovereignty, and addressing climate change impacts on food security in East Africa.
