Achieving sustainable development in the face of climate change hinges on overcoming challenges faced by the billions of people engaged in crop and animal agriculture, forestry and fisheries. Collectively, these people are the custodians of much of the world’s natural resources. They are also amongst the world’s poorest and most vulnerable. Transforming agriculture and food systems in ways that simultaneously improves lives, livelihoods, and the condition of natural resources presents a formidable challenge. CGIAR is committed to addressing this challenge by working in research partnerships that deliver on-the-ground solutions for the planet’s most vulnerable people.
