Research in some sub-Saharan African countries does not provide sustainable solutions to the vital problems of hunger and poverty, underdevelopment, disease, poor education and rudimentary agriculture. For example, in sub- Saharan countries, the malnutrition rate has increased from 33.3% in 1990-1992 to 23.8% in 2012-2014. This decline was short-lived and the number of undernourished increased again. Total dependence on natural resources is the main cause of biodiversity loss. The lack of advanced technologies and frequent natural phenomena such as drought are slowing the economic boom in Africa. Research can now be the hope of a thriving African economy and gradually increase the standard of living. It is a challenge to overcome by starting to exploit many results of theses and articles. Applying these results can be a way out of hunger and extreme poverty. Many activities currently being carried out in Africa include unsustainable agriculture, mining, timbers’ exportation and subsistence economics. Good management of these activities can be a means to truly support development.
