Research projects

ICARDA projects are development oriented. Some combine different technologies into practical, easy-to-implement ‘packages’ designed to meet the needs of resource-poor smallholder farmers and pastoralists. Others aim to solve specific research problems or fill knowledge gaps – for example breeding varieties that are resistant to a new pathogen strain or adapted to a particular environment.

Projects may be implemented in a single country or in multiple countries that share similar agro-ecologies, and are funded by national governments, international development agencies and other partners.

Using non-GM molecular breeding techniques, ICARDA’s scientists developed a set of durum wheat varieties that can withstand up to 40°C heat along the Senegal River basin. The project was supported by the Swedish Research Council.
