LINK travels with Heifer to Asia and Africa

Building on its success in Central and South America, the collaborative work on value chain development and inclusive business between CIAT and Heifer International has expanded to 13 countries from Asia and Africa—again, in the form of a Learning Cycle around the LINK methodology.

The business of quick-cook beans

When it comes to transforming agriculture in Africa, the need to join forces with the private sector has surfaced again and again in recent times, notably at the Africa Green Revolution Forum in Nairobi last month.

CIAT in Africa

CIAT’s vision of the promise of tropical agriculture is especially relevant to sub-Saharan Africa. Nowhere does the well-being of so many people depend so much on a concerted effort to realize farming’s potential for reducing chronic hunger, opening pathways out of rural poverty, enhancing human nutrition, and improving the management of natural resources. CIAT works especially on the following topics:

  • Eco-Efficient Smallholder Farming
  • Bean Revolution
  • Soils and Sustainable Development
  • Feeding the Livestock Revolution
