Sub-Saharan Africa Regional Program

ICARDA works with its partners in Sub-Saharan Africa to alleviate poverty, improve water productivity, and strengthen the capacity of NARES. In 2016, the Center’s regional priorities included the development of improved climate-resilient crop varieties, such as heat-tolerant wheat that has the potential to reduce the region’s rising wheat import dependence, and a community-based livestock breeding program adapted to the resource-constraints of rural communities.
