whose incomes are rising. Increased agricultural productivity is a major stepping stone on the path out of poverty.
The potential of new scientific capabilities to address agricultural constraints in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia is substantial, provided that they will be pursued with the specific problems of farmers in these regions in mind. Scientists from all backgrounds have an opportunity to become involved in bringing the 60 technologies described in this report (see Box S-2) and other technologies to fruition.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
