ICARDA’s research aims to improve smallholder crop and livestock production systems in dry areas. This is practical, goal-oriented research for development, implemented in partnership with local communities and a range of research and development organizations.
We use a multidisciplinary, integrated agro-ecosystems approach, to ensure that technologies, policies, institutions and capacity development work together to improve food security and livelihoods, while conserving natural resources.
Food Security Project
A large-scale regional project is helping to boost food security in wheat-based cropping systems in five countries – Egypt, Morocco, Sudan, Syria and Tunisia.
