Feed the Future works with this network of international agricultural research centers to support critical research and public good knowledge products. Our collaboration with CGIAR centers focus on developing solutions that improve crop production, conserve genetic resources, protect livestock and animal health, integrate agroforestry, help farmers manage pests and diseases, and help partner countries build evidence-based policies.
Through collaboration with Feed the Future and others in the global research community, these national systems identify challenges, develop innovations, and pilot and adapt existing innovations to address local demands, constraints and opportunities. With national systems, Feed the Future works to strengthen partner countries’ capacity to respond to future food security challenges.
U.S. universities help bring research and innovation to solve global food security challenges. As Feed the Future partners, these institutions implement and evaluate projects, manage scientific programs and fellowships, and serve as knowledge-sharing hubs for tackling global food security challenges.
Feed the Future partners with local universities to set scientific priority, develop research and implement new solutions. They educate the next generation of partner country scientists, farmers, legislators and entrepreneurs. Feed the Future helps this new cohort of global food security leaders access training, while strengthening the capacity of local universities to provide it for future generations.
Feed the Future Innovation Labs draw on the expertise of top U.S. universities and developing country research institutions to tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges in agriculture and food security. Led by U.S. universities, these Innovation Labs are central to advancing novel solutions that support our goals to reduce global hunger, poverty and undernutrition.
