ICRISAT Ambassadors of Goodwill

 

The ICRISAT Ambassadors of Goodwill, launched in 2013, aimed at enlisting the support of outstanding personalities in championing the Institute’s mission. The Ambassadors would help champion ICRISAT’s work in science-based agricultural solutions for improving livelihoods and attaining food and nutrition security. They would motivate and inspire individuals and organizations to support the cause of smallholder farmers in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.

 

 

About us

ICRISAT works in agricultural research for development across the drylands of Africa and Asia, making farming profi table for smallholder farmers while reducing malnutrition and environmental degradation. We work across the entire value chain from developing new varieties to agri-business and linking farmers to markets.

Vision
A prosperous, food-secure and resilient dryland tropics

Mission
To reduce poverty, hunger, malnutrition and environmental degradation in the dryland tropics

Approach
Inclusive Market-Oriented Development (IMOD)

 

Research Programs

The work at ICRISAT is accomplished by four major research programs

  • Resilient Dryland Systems;
  • Markets, Institutions and Policies;
  • Grain Legumes; and
  • Dryland Cereals,

along with the

  • Agribusiness and Innovation Platform (AIP);
  • Knowledge Sharing and Innovation (KSI); and
  • Platform for Translational Research on Transgenic Crops (PTTC)
  • under the overall framework of the Inclusive Market-Oriented Development (IMOD).

Development Program

In 2014, the ICRISAT Development Center (IDC) was created.
