While the world has achieved steady progress in decreasing hunger on a global basis, integrating “Enset” might become particularly viable and deliver climate resilience, according to the World Economic Forum. It is being consumed by 20 million Ethiopians. The Enset’s fruit is poisonous, but its “stems and roots” can be used to make porridge and bread.

The plant has the potential to grow tall. While food security is a concern, the Enset offers a ray of hope because its 60 trees can sustain a family of five for a year. It has the ability to withstand climate change since it can withstand drought, flooding, and extreme temperatures.

Its fibers and leaves could be used in construction projects. Relative plants of the Enset grow as far as South Africa, implying that it might be farmed further widely. Scientists calculated that the crop might feed 100 million people in Uganda, Rwanda, and Kenya over the next four decades, based on models. Half of the area required to cultivate coffee could be unusable by 2050. In that case, this Ethiopian staple could be critical in the fight for food security, particularly in sub-Saharan African countries.
