Program Goal: Cultivate resilient food systems globally by bridging farmer-centered agroecological research, action, and influence.
The Global Collaboration for Resilient Food Systems—formerly called the Collaborative Crop Research Program (CCRP)—works to ensure a world where all have access to nutritious food that is sustainably produced by local people. We do this through collaborative agroecological systems research and knowledge-sharing that strengthen the capacities of smallholder farmers, research institutes, and development organizations.
Our Approach: We take a holistic, ecosystem approach to agriculture, supporting research and partnerships that lead to increased crop productivity, improved livelihoods, better nutrition, and increased equity. We focus our support in three communities of practice in 10 countries located in the high Andes and Africa. We leverage the relationships, networks, and evidence that have been created to advance deep transformations in local, regional, and global food systems. Learn more.
