We believe that science, technology and innovation are the keys to reducing hunger, malnutrition and poverty around the globe. We empower national agricultural research institutions to achieve their food security goals as we support efforts to end global hunger.
Feed the Future
Innovation Lab for
Our work is advancing plant breeding tools, technologies and methods aimed at delivering staple crops that can increase yields, enhance nutrition and show greater resistance to pests and diseases. We are committed to working with diverse scientists on the ground to create enduring solutions that can eliminate hunger. We focus on five key areas of inquiry:
We serve as a support system for national agricultural research institutions to deliver increased genetic gain and new varieties for key product profiles that advance economic growth, resilience and nutritional development goals.
The application period is open from March 1 to April 10, 2020.
Empowering a variety of growth & improvement
We are working to accelerate the breeding of locally and regionally adapted crop varieties targeted to smallholder farmers. The Innovation Lab will serve as a catalyst for these crops:
Plant breeding does far more
than just feed the world.
Our project prioritizes:
Gender equality, equity and participation
Nutrition and food safety
Resilience and risk management
Our integrated research and delivery program combines multidisciplinary expertise at the cutting edge of agricultural development.
