“Communication is a task for us all”

Sylvia Pineda, a member of the internal communications team at CIAT, visited the Central American regional office in Managua, Nicaragua, on October 16-20. During her visit, topics related to the work carried out by the internal communications team, its achievements, and future prospects for the region were discussed.

The vision for a deforestation-free Amazon

The Amazon Vision Program, an initiative of the Colombian government, with the support of the Governments of Norway, United Kingdom and Germany, seeks to promote a new model of development in the Amazon that will improve the living conditions of its inhabitants through productive alternatives that do not cause deforestation to the already battered forest.

A different kind of scarecrow

A novel approach from Japan is being tested in CIAT fields with the goal of enabling rice farmers in Colombia and Latin America to make quick, wise, and exacting decisions about their crops based on real-time agricultural data.

CIAT in Latin America

Through our work in one of the most ecologically and agriculturally diverse regions on the planet, we aim to ensure that the whole world benefits from agricultural innovations developed in Latin America and the Caribbean.

With its wealth of natural resources, wide pool of human talent, and strong record of technological innovation, the region has great potential for achieving sustainable agricultural development as well as for strengthening global food security.
