Research to Action

ICARDA’s Research to Action service provides a synthesis of research findings and country experiences, resulting from work with partners in 35 countries with dryland agro-ecosystems. These concepts and practices are designed to help decision makers strengthen their national policies and strategies for food security.

The aim of this space is to provide decision makers and development professionals with new and practical perspectives that add value to their programs and to inform decision making on agriculture and rural development policies in the world’s dry areas.
